De­mount­able num­bers dou­ble

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS -

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.”
