Grumpy, thats great news for your boy im so happy to hear that
My son is quiet as a mouse, introverted and obsessed with stucking to the rules, the teacher said if he was causing a problem in the classroom, he would be more of a priority for help.
Thank you everyone.

This is outrageous! I feel really upset for you.
So, just so I understand it, the state government (NSW) has cut funding to schools for aides to assist special needs children in order for the money to be better spent elsewhere....? Is that it?
What does your principal say - surely people won't just lie down and take this? I know it was federal government push to improve education in this country, so how can a state government move in the opposite direction and expect support? Seems bizarre.

This is why there was industrial action a couple of weeks ago, although, as usual, the media reported it to be about pay

de its cause he has a double dx aspergers and odd. combined they give just enough funding. but the reality is he is def going to lose substantial aide time as the kids who just lost funding still need it. so it will be shared round to some extent. obviously its lose lose for all though as all the kids are going to be getting less or no time at all
its making me so angry my heads gonna explode

The reason they are doing this is so they can wipe their hands of their responsibility. When people complain, they can say that it wasn't their decision, since they have handed financial responsibility to the individual school! Disgusting!

It was in yesterday's paper here in NORTH brisbane that the government will be spending more money, enough to fund a full time aide at 600 schools in Qld.. Looks like we may be getting more funding not less??

Yes, dd gets an extra 1.5 hours per week. I'm in qld. This should be federal, not left up to each state! Why should the OP's little boy miss out because he happens to live in NSW?
DE I am so very sorry to you, your baby, your family and every other affected child and family in that position

This is just so devastating! They always target those who need it most. Arrghh. I am so effing peeved. And I seriously shouldn't be surprised, this is B O'F's government after all.
I hope someone starts something - a protest or something, post on here if you hear about anything!
