Suspension of Roz Ward from La Trobe University

Thursday, 2 June 2016

The recent suspension of Marxist Roz Ward by La Trobe University is further evidence of the problems associated with the controversial Safe Schools Program.

Ms Ward is the principal architect of Safe Schools – a program that Daniel Andrews is forcing on every government secondary school.

Under Labor, parents have no choice whether their children participates in this program.

The Liberal Nationals believe that all children should be taught respect and tolerance for all, but that is not what Roz Ward’s program is about.

The Andrews Government has gone into witness protection on Safe Schools.  Daniel Andrews needs to explain why he continues to back the delivery of Roz Ward’s controversial program.

Instead of spending more than $1million of taxpayer money to force Roz Ward’s fringe extremism onto other people’s children, Daniel Andrews should focus on teaching kids to read, write and count.

The Liberal Nationals believe that it is up to parents to instil values into their own children, and government should focus on giving them a sound education to prepare them for adulthood.
