Catholic Schools Asked To Drop ‘Mother’, ‘Father’ From Admissions Forms
According to the Catholic Herald, Catholic schools in England have been asked to drop the words "Mother" and "Father" from admissions forms.
The request comes after a government ruling said the terms could be too restrictive.
The ruling was reached after a complaint was made at a primary Catholic school, stating that the words "Mother" and "Father" discriminated against "non-traditional" parents (step, divorced, gay).
According to the report, many schools have already replaced the terms with "Parent 1" and "Parent 2".
What do you think of this change?
