Today I was informed that due to school closures, one ACT K-10 school was overrun with applications. 200 students were effectivel “turned away” due to being “out of area”.
Yesterday reps from the ACT Dept of Education went to the school (think diplomat) to discuss expanding the school i.e. new buildings and/or portables, to effectively take on those 200 students and possibly more.
My question is, if they have room to build more buildings and add portables, then they obviously have enough money to keep schools open – well some at least.
Any comments Mr. Barr?
