In a nutshell, Barry O'Farrell wants to change the way our public schools are funded. It sounds reasonable enough at first, but it could have a disastrous effect on our public education system. Have a read of this link from the Teacher's Federation:
This is what next week's stop work action is all about. If this gets through there will be no more minimum staffing numbers. There will be less money devoted to education. If this doesn't sit right with you, please follow this link to send a letter to Barry and your own local member.
If we don't get behind our teachers on this, I really feel its our kids that will miss out. And no, I'm not a teacher!
