Hamilton father of two Steve Tourloukis had his day in court last week fighting for his right as a parent to have the final say over what his children are taught in public school. 

The outcome of the case will made evident just how much control the government exercises over children once they leave their homes and enter into the public education system. 

Tourloukis hopes that the court will find that the public school board in Hamilton violated his Charter-protected religious freedom rights by refusing to tell him in advance when and how teachers would be dealing with sensitive topics such as abortion, homosexuality, same-sex “marriage” and sex ed, so he could pull his children out of class if he thought they would be exposed to what would be “false teachings” according to their Greek Orthodox faith.

“The [school board’s] refusal to give me advance notice is scandalous,” he said in a press conference after the hearing.
