Saskatchewan’s Catholic school boards to appeal ruling on funding

The Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association says it will appeal a judge’s decision to ban funding non-Catholic students in Catholic schools.

The ruling released last week said the province can’t provide Catholic schools funding for students who aren’t Catholic.

Association spokesman Tom Fortosky says there have been a lot of concerns from parents and adds funding will not be received for non-Catholics if the appeal is lost in court.

Justice Donald Layh ruled that provincial government funding of non-minority faith students attending separate schools infringes on religious neutrality and equality rights.  (more...)
