Demountable numbers double
OPPOSITION Leader Luke Foley says Labor has forced the Berejiklian Government to reveal plans to increase the number of demountable classrooms in NSW schools by more than 5800 to cope with overcrowding.
“Premier Berejiklian hates the idea of spending anything on educating our children,” Mr Foley said.
NSW Shadow Education Minister Jihad Dib says that demountables have become to go-to permanent option.
“This Government will constantly say it has allocated record amounts of money to school upgrades and rebuilds. What it doesn’t say is that they have only built an average of two schools a year for the past 6 years – less than half Labor’s average of 5 schools a year.”
