School comments divisive

I am not sure why Stan Liacos feels that he is qualified to comment on the performance of local schools. He has certainly never set foot in our school.

He seems impressed by the efforts of wealthy private schools to invest in infrastructure and is very comfortable in his relationship with BSSC and it’s gaol/theatre project.

That’s his bread and butter cheesy-smile photo opportunity specialty.

That’s easy stuff.

Where does Mr Liacos believe BSSC students have come from?

I once asked him at an Arts function if he ever got out into schools. No. I offered him a visit.

His comments about schools lifting their game are insulting and divisive or at the best ill-considered and impulsive.

He needs to apply the same amount of accountability rigor to his beloved Art Gallery with its half million dollar loss as he purports to do with our schools.

Schools such as mine in ‘lower socio-economic’ areas have achieved data levels equal to,and in some cases surpassing, the best schools in the State.

I would suggest that State Government schools in particular are subjected to equally as much annual monitoring as Mr Liacos and his fellow Council officers and I’m fairly confident the local public would have more confidence in us at the moment based on recent Council efforts.
