He's got to be joking?


I could see this coming guys, re- those crappy free lap-tops they handed out becoming substitute futuristic teachers for when they cant be assed paying for qualified permanent staff.



We really need to get rid of Rudd and his education 'revolution' ..what a joke, what a waste of money that could have been put to better use.

Does Christopher Rudd (Kevin Rudds son) have to put up with this in his prestigious Anglican private school?

Rather ironic considering Rudd himself was a mere product of a public Nambour High school.

What schools really need is qualified permanent staff... (and the incentive to enter and remain in the public sector) not the roll-out of a bunch of crappy 'Chinese' lap-tops they aren't likely to use unless they are povo and don't have a computer to use at home.

Most kids do.

FURIOUS parents are demanding the New South Wales Education Department explain why their children have been abandoned without a qualified 2-unit maths teacher for the first month of Year 12.

Education officials told parents from Davidson High School, on Sydney's Northern Beaches, the situation was not a one-off and there were year 12 classes at other high schools without teachers. One mother, Cheralyn Darcey, said she was "disgusted" to learn her daughter's class has been forced to learn from a DIY internet maths site.

"It's disgraceful. This situation is jeopardising all of these students' futures," Mrs Darcey said. "There was enough money to spend tens of thousands on a fence around the school over Christmas but they can't find the funds for a teacher."

Rather than not having the funds, the issue is more likely about not being able to find a suitably qualified teacher that actually wants to work there.

You get what you pay for.....and if they created the incentive, then more teachers worth their weight in gold would be only too happy to teach on a more permanent basis in the public sector.

The rate it's going, public schools are being filled with FOBS....semi-qualified people fresh off the boat desiring Australian residency.

1/4 of international full fee paying students readily admit to studying in Australia, just to get Australian residency.... where does this leave existing Australian teachers?

See fobs will accept low wages, because they desire both income and Australian residency,...whereas Australian teachers desire income only. FOBS are less inclined to complain about their work entitlements and rates of pay, given just being here alone is a blessing in itself, this and they don't want to be seen as dissidents.

And it was on the radio this morning that illegal immigrants with a Australian skills-shortage qualification (teachers) were being granted preference over those who illegally immigrate here also , who's professions, skills aren't in high demand here in Australia this or can be outsourced.

Rudd is creating a two tiered education system.... education for the wealthy and privileged, (private schools pay better, so can be more selective with respects to their staff) whereas public schools are battling to fill vacancy's in even the more privilege areas, because teachers working in the public sector are under-paid and valued. Simple as that.

It all comes down to funding, rather a lack of it.


Bottom line, it comes down to $$$$$$$...for every public teacher who complains about their wages and work entitlements, is a FOB happy to fill their place.

Australians are being forced to compete with residency seeking immigrants for their jobs.

You believe government run schools are hiring people not qualified for the positions?

No, I believe existing Australians capacity to negotiate wage/work related terms and conditions is being compromised by those coming into our country willing to work for the minimal wage (peanuts) in return for Australian residency.

Lets face it, fobs have more of an incentive to tolerate poor wages and work conditions, (there is a light at the end of the tunnel for these people) ...because not only are they accustomed to a less privileged lifestyle, wage wise, they are not only working for a wage, are often working in order to gain permanent Australian residency.


I don't think it's fair for existing Australian teachers to be forced to compete with those who have more than the desire to teach and be paid a fair rate of pay in their sights.

Some of which are barely capable of speaking English themselves.
