Alberta's Education Act tramples parental rights

Schools subject to province's human rights legislation not court rulings
Liberal MLA Laurie Blakeman, at Edmonton's 2011 Pride Parade, says parents have authority over their children at home, but once children go to school, the Education Act takes precedence.
It appears government's secular indoctrination of children isn't just happening in B.C., Quebec, and Ontario. The B.C. Catholic has a Western Catholic Reporter story about Alberta's new Education Act. The act will be enforced by the province's (sometimes anti-Christian) human rights legislation:
Under Alberta’s proposed Education Act, the curriculum of all schools will be subject to the Alberta human rights legislation and by extension, its quasi-judicial tribunals.

“These values, these tribunal rulings — not court of law rulings — will now be forced in every course and every program of study in Alberta,” said Patty Marler, the government liaison for the Alberta Home Education Association.
