Mr Kelly stated that he would no longer allow Access Ministries in his school. “It is not education,” he said. “It has no value whatsoever. It is rubbish – hollow and empty rhetoric … My school teachers are committed to teaching children, not indoctrinating them.” The objection Mr Kelly and other school principals have is that Access Ministries is proselytising rather than informing; instructing rather than educating. Mr Kelly has also questioned the qualifications of the volunteers provided by Access Ministries stating that they are not professional teachers and undergo just six hours training before they are sent into schools. Meanwhile, the response to Konrad Marshall’s article was extraordinary to say the least, recording over 14,000 Facebook likes and 175 comments highlighting the concerns many parents have about faith-based religious education.
