According to this article $480 million plan for more school autonomy NT has now accepted $2.4 mill to ‘ implement school autonomy measures in 20 Territory schools.
But, just like in NSW, it appears that the money to schools is what they are really after not school autonomy. This article quotes the Principal of Ludmilla Primary who will use the funds for a family liaison project.
Now I ask you – what is stopping Ludmilla from implementing thsi program now? Is it lack of autonomy – No it is lack of funds.
The more this program rolls out the more it is starting to look like a giant school bribery program.
The only question is – what is the Commonwealth getting from this expenditure? Suggestions anyone?
