Quality childcare in a

Huge sea change in ACT Education, compromise comes for economy.

As noted in an earlier story the Government has, without consultation or taking the policy to an election, decided to do away with community schools. The Canberra Times has more detail here.

Tonight on ABC News came the confirmation that “Middle Schools” (grades 6-8, think junior high) are going to be part of the seperated groups within the new mega campuses.

This is a huge change to the manner of education in the ACT (good luck getting the kids to school and back without a car too).

Bear in mind that when Katy Gallagher bongs on about the extra facilities they can offer in these concentration camps she means facilities she doesn’t have the budget to fund in smaller, discrete, community schools.

On the bright side it shouldn’t be too late to reverse this by the time the next election rolls around.

What’s Your opinion?
