Labor’s city schools plan under fire from Redman
Warren-Blackwood MLA Terry Redman says Capes parents are paying for Labor’s education promises in safe seats.
This week’s news of 10 new schools was confined to Laborheld seats in the city, while students in the Augusta-Margaret River shire would face the consequences of the Government’s troubled cuts to education, he said.
Mr Redman said Labor’s schools plan was a “slap in the face” for the South West, which is fighting proposed camp school closures at Pemberton and Bridgetown.
Cuts were also affecting the farm program at Margaret River Senior High School, he said.
“Once again, the McGowan Government is robbing regional communities to pay for shiny new toys in Labor’s Perth seats,” Mr Redman said.
“These new schools will cost hundreds of millions of dollars, obliterating the meagre savings the Government is achieving by these cuts.”
Mr Redman said regional communities would continue to suffer until the McGowan Government outlined a new revenue source to fix the State Budget.
