FSM Schools in Ontario?



September 18, 2007

I do think that a single education system in Ontario would be better funded than the present split system which allows for Public & Catholic schools. Right now tax payers are allowed to choose which school system they want their tax dollars to support, but there is no option to support a unified system.

I did enjoy this little video on the subject put up by the Greens:

It is interesting how humor can be used so very effectively on the net to drive home a point. The Flying Spaghetti Monster, the deity of Pastafarianism, was created in response to intelligent design advocates who were trying to bring creationism into science classes in the states. This is one of the best examples where this has been used effectively.
