Ray Pennings says: Don't be afraid of religious schools

In a Calgary Herald op-ed yesterday, Cardus executive vice president Ray Pennings encouraged critics not to fear religious schools.

Regarding cases such as the concern over Trinity Western University's community covenant, Pennings says:

"...to connect the pattern of that discrimination to the existence of a belief system rooted in a respect for every person as an image-bearer of God is a leap supported neither by law nor the evidence.
If critics of religious schools did their homework, they would know that, in general, religious schools do at least as good a job—and in many cases, a better job—of achieving the purposes of public education than do public schools.
