Education sell off amid house of cards

I came across this post by Matt Barrie the other day. The post is not new (Nov 2017) but it did seem timely given my review of investments in education in this country.

From his lengthy, thought-provoking article:

“Since taking power, the NSW Government has sold 384 Department of Education properties. That is despite leaked Department of Education documents that report NSW is facing an influx of 15,000 school students a year, and will require $10.8 billion in funding for 7,500 new classrooms and buildings over just 15 years.”

Perhaps the demolition of Gosford Primary School was just one in 384. Any citation?

Then again, perhaps pop-up schools are the way of the future…
