Parents organization says parents are first educators

Parents must defend children against anti-family indoctrination says PAFE director
Parents groups in B.C. are also taking a stand against the government's education polices. Representatives from the Catholic Civil Rights League and the Kids First Parent Association of Canada, sign “The Declaration on the Authority of Parents and Guardians in the Education of their Children,” in front of Premier Christy Clark's office. The B.C. Catholic will have full coverage in the March 12 issue.
 It looks like parents across Canada are getting a bit testy with the government's "indoctrination" of their children. Deborah Gyapong of Canadian Catholic News Service reports on the efforts an organization is having in Ottawa:

Parents must assert their rights as first educators of their children or bear the consequences of a government policy that will profoundly re-engineer their children’s views on family and sexuality.

That’s the message that Parents As First Educators (PAFE) director Teresa Pierre brought to three Ottawa Catholic churches Mar. 3-4.

“You need to start getting involved,” she warned. “Start attending your parent teacher meetings and start asking questions when you hear a proposal offered that doesn’t sound quite right or worse, when you don’t hear anything at all.”
