The ABC is reporting on musings by Greens Leader Deb Foskey as to what can be done with the schools soon to be vacated by the Government razor gangs (she hasn’t seen her way clear to actually putting a media release online).
Deb would like them given to child care or community groups.
It’s an attractive idea at first glance. On the other hand child care is a commercial beast and why are we giving them rent-free premises? Or the “Community Groups” for that matter?
I’d certainly like to see the sports grounds officially turned over to general community use, but why not tear down the ugly monstrosities of the buildings to build new homes and generate some revenue for the Government at the same time?
