‘POL­I­TICS IN CLASS­ROOM’

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

THE state gov­ern­ment has been slammed for “politi­cis­ing” the class­room af­ter chil­dren were asked to colour-in de­signs for the Car­rum sky rail project.

Car­rum Pri­mary School stu­dents were asked to colour the space un­derneath the 900m rail bridge over Paterson River, McLeod Rd and the new Car­rum sta­tion.

Op­po­si­tion spokesman Tim Smith said North Korean-style pro­pa­ganda was be­ing used in an at­tempt to ma­nip­u­late chil­dren into agree­ing with the de­sign.

Act­ing Public Trans­port Min­is­ter Luke Don­nel­lan said the gov­ern­ment would not apol­o­gise for in­volv­ing stu­dents in the project.
