Who decides what children get taught when it comes to moral and religious questions? Parents or the state?

The bill incorporates the Alberta Human Rights Act into the law governing schools and education, presumably giving aggrieved students, parents and teachers the right to file complaints with the Alberta Human Rights Commission (HRC).
