Does anyone know when the report into School Principal’s Budget Autonomy Trial will be released? The trial was significantly scaled back after 18 months in July last year which raised a more than a few eyebrows. I for one am curious to know if the principal’s came in on budget? Did they appropriate the money wisely? Did the trial lead to job cuts? Did any principals cut staff positions to buy assets or renovate??? Was there any gauging or rorting? Are the principal’s who were kicked off the trial up to the job?
I hope the Education Directorate doesn’t only report on those schools that saw out the entire trial. The tax payer funded the entire trial and deserves to know, warts and all, all the findings whether a school completed the trial or not.
