Canadian school district
charged with discrimination

Moncton, New Brunswick
(JTA) -- A Jewish mother
in this Canadian town has
charged that local school
district 13 is forcing Jewish
pupils to be targets of dis-
crimination during school
periods when the catechism
is taught, according to the
report in the Moncton
Times-Transcript.
Natiania Etienne, the
mother, said the Jewish
pupils must either go to the
school library or wait in
school hallways, a situation
Mrs. Etienne said was the
equivalent of forcing the
Jewish pupils to "go to the
back of the bus, the same
way the Negroes were
treated in the southern
United States." She de-
clared that non-Catholic
children in the French
speaking school districts
should have alternate
courses during periods of
catechism teaching.
She contended that the
children of parents of
Jewish, Moslem, Buddhist,
Jehovah's Witnesses and
other faiths were being de-
nied "basic religious free-
dom."
Mrs. Etienne said chil-
dren in grades one to six are

now being given other
courses during catechism
periods in district schools
but this "concession was
permitted by school district
officials only after a bitterly
fought battle" a few years
ago.
During that time, she de-
clared, she received tele-
phone threats and some of
the other pupils put pres-
sure on her two children
presently attending
elementary schools in the
district.
She said that, after the
sixth grade, non-Christian
pupils have the "choice" of
sitting in the catechism
class or sitting or standing
halls, a procedure she called
"undemocratic and unfair."
Donald Jubas, president
of B'nai B'rith Canada, was
reported by the newspaper
as saying that not only was
the absence of alternate
classes for non-Catholic
pupils wrong but also
"anti-Jewish" in nature. He
said the Catholic students
are being taught that the
Jews were guilty of deicide
and that this created hostil-
ity between the two groups
of students.
