What is the state of ‘religious freedom’ in Australian schools? For example: may Jewish schools exclude non-Jewish students/staff? May an Anglican school force a Jewish student to attend chapel? How do religious schools deal with sexuality and dress codes? Religious schools juggle complicated questions, trying to avoid unlawful discrimination while also transmitting religious identity. We’ll explore what Australian Jewish schools can/can’t do compared to other countries and what the Religious Freedom Review (2018) had to say about these issues.
