In the past year concerns have been raised by members of the Religion & Morals Committee regarding the fact that some aspects of government funded state education, are contrary to, and undermine, sound Scriptural teaching. Consequently, a proposal was considered by the 2016 Synod to provide support to parents who wish to educate their children outside the state system. The Synod agreed that our people – parents and other interested parties – should be consulted as to their present educational arrangements and their opinion of an alternative provision.
A committee was established by Synod to move the proposals forward, and to this end we have drafted a questionnaire at this link.
It would be greatly appreciated if parents and other interested persons, who are Free Presbyterians, would complete it; all opinions, positive and negative, will help us in our assessment of the level of interest. If it is impractical to use the online form, hard copies of the questionnaire are being made available to Clerks of Deacons’ Courts. These should be returned to F R Daubney, 2 Gadloch Gardens, Lenzie, G66 5DB.
All responses should be returned by the end of November 2016 DV.
F R Daubney, Convener, Education Committee.
