City needs ed­u­ca­tion fo­rum

Geraldton Guardian - - Opinion - Conor Buck­ley, Ger­ald­ton

I read that the In­de­pen­dent Re­view into Re­gional, Ru­ral and Re­mote Ed­u­ca­tion will hold com­mu­nity fo­rums in Northam, Kal­go­or­lie, Bun­bury, and Al­bany. I am a teacher in Ger­ald­ton. The fun­da­men­tal prob­lem with such a re­view is they are ig­no­rant of, or choose to ig­nore, a city of some 40,000 peo­ple.

This is not to men­tion Kar­ratha, Broome or Ku­nunurra. It would be a more ef­fi­cient use of tax­pay­ers’ money if the re­view body stayed in Can­berra and googled the in­for­ma­tion.
