Education

To the Honourable Members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled:

This Petition of the undersigned draws the attention of the House to significant community concerns over the overt and explicit Islamisation of Australian school-age children through the agency of the text-book "Learning From Anothers" Bringing Muslim Perspectives into Australian Schools" which is to be introduced into our schools in the coming year.

1. I n breach of the Australian Constitution Preamble and section 116. The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office or public trust under the Commonwealth.

2. Academically inaccurate .

3. Intellectually dishonest.

We therefore humbly request the House to withdraw this resource, and discontinue in-service immediately.
