School de­bate

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS WELCOME -

OUR schools are no place for agen­das and ide­olo­gies.

Class­rooms and schools need to be fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing great ed­u­ca­tion out­comes for our chil­dren.

The State La­bor Gov­ern­ment’s fo­cus on the Safe Schools Coali­tion pro­gram and re­sources has left par­ents and com­mu­ni­ties in the dark on how widely it is be­ing used.

There has been a lack of au­dits and lit­tle dis­clo­sure of which schools are us­ing the re­sources.

There is no ev­i­dence to sup­port the con­tin­u­a­tion of the Safe Schools Coali­tion pro­gram in Queens­land.

New South Wales and Tas­ma­nian gov­ern­ments have an­nounced they are with­draw­ing the pro­gram from their schools.

A fu­ture LNP gov­ern­ment will with­draw the Safe Schools Coali­tion re­sources in Queens­land schools and de­velop a broad anti-bul­ly­ing strat­egy in its place that will pro­mote in­clu­sion and pro­vide re­sources for teach­ers and stu­dents.

All forms of bul­ly­ing and anti-so­cial be­hav­iour should never be tol­er­ated in our schools. — Ann Leahy Mem­ber for War­rego
