Greens MLA Deb Foskey has criticised education minister Andrew Barr for the late advertising of a youth forum on the 2020 school closure plan.
However the minister denied to the ABC that insufficient notice was given, saying that in fact it had been widely publicised. (This ABC story was the first I heard about it)
An advertisement for the forum, which will be held at the new Griffin Centre from 5.30 tonight, appeared on page 13 of Saturday’s Canberra Times. The forum is being run by the ACT Minister’s Youth Council and Andrew Barr and children and youth minister Katy Gallagher will attend.
The ad is below, for those interested.
