Read my posts, Nathan. I've already responded to that. And I'm sure that anyone who isn't a religious reactionary would agree that the health of our girls trumps "the rights [real or imagined] of the school."

What's wrong with focusing on both? Then more lives are protected.
Government mandates all kinds of things as far as publicly funded schools are concerned, including things that are contrary to religious belief, like parts of the science curriculum. Doesn't that impede their "rights" as well?

VP - does Govt. supplement the funding that comes specifically from tax payer dollars earmarked by the tax payer themselves to fund the separate school boards?

Yes, because providing children with the tools to take illegal drugs is exactly the same thing as a medical vaccination to prevent a potentially deadly illness.

At one time, residents had to indicate on their tax forms whether or not they supported the public or the separate school boards. That changed a long time ago. Now, it simply all comes from the same place, and it's allotted based on enrollment numbers.

weird - they haven't update the forms then, I've been getting allocation choices for the last 6 yrs. Maybe it's by municipality?

Maybe it is, then. I know here, they go by enrollment numbers - there was a big to-do about it locally in the past year or so.

I'm pretty sure that's not universal then. Here, we still choose, and the board gets a lot of additional funding through board run lotteries. I was just curious.

It's kind of strange, I would have thought it would have been consistent across the province, but I guess not.

Unless it was changed back here, and I wasn't aware of it. I'm pretty sure it wasn't, though.

It is based on municipalities.

This is governed by the Education Act - you need to go to the Regulations (enabled by the EA) to see the allocations per municipality.

Who on earth is being lynched? The school is willing to distribute information to anyone who wants it.

The issue IS cervical cancer because of how you can contract it. I don't see you up in arms about other life saving immunizations that schools met out. I just think its unbelieviably narrow minded to not want to give out a free life saving needle due to the fact that it is contracted during sex. It has nothing to do with RELIGION but all to do with screwed up "morals" that are spouted by delusional religious people.

And i love that HUGE jump you made by comparing a medical marvel with handing out clean needles. You truly have no clue as to what we're on about when you say things like this.

Are there any things that liberals believe that are delusional?

I'm sure a lot of people think delusional thoughts, such as my delusional thought that people can't actually be stupid enough to want to vote for Mccain/Palin

but then i'm not spouting this shit to a school full of developing minds. This is why I believe these sorts of things are almost akin to child abuse, because you're definately screwing them up mentally with ya mumbo jumbo talk.

Many would say that abortion is the worst form of child abuse.
