Canada: Mennonite School, Curriculum Questioned by Authorities

Today’s Family News reports that Quebec’s only Mennonite community has opted to leave its eastern Canadian town of Roxton Falls rather than send its children to state-run schools after the education ministry deemed the Mennonite school in the area was operating illegally.
