Education expert questions australian school system indigenous children should be enrolled as well as other ethnic groups
The decision by the Central Council of the Churches (CCC) to allow Catholic schools to operate at the same time for the first time in more than two centuries should be a wake up call to governments, including the federal government, to respect religious freedom.
