The Liberal’s Vicki Dunne put out an interesting media release yesterday.
She’s used FOI to get hold of the first briefing from the Department of Education to their new Minister Andrew Barr. Apparently there was no mention in that briefing of the need to radically restructure the education system.
Just five weeks later the slash and burn began. So it begs the question, if the Department wasn’t driving this restructure, who was? And how can they be expected to plan out a new education system effectively in just five weeks?
