The ABC has a story on the potential repercussions of a funding cut to the “Kids at play” program.
Once upon a time kids would play without the need for a government program.
In the way of all those taking government money, takeup of a free product is considered justification of continued government funding.
“We have bookings right through to the end of this year, they’re booked out all the time, which shows there’s a definite need for this particular type of program within the community”
Can anyone explain why we started paying for kids to play in the first place, and perhaps why we should continue to do so?
