Special Ed changes highlight ad hoc implementation
Trevor Mallard said the Government had put the families of hundreds of children in special education attached units through more than two years of intense uncertainty which had created a huge amount of stress.
"This is not a brave step forward for Dr Smith. It is merely removing the uncertainty and the threat of closure from hundreds of attached units around the country," Trevor Mallard said.
"They should have never been put through the ringer like they have and it's a poor reflection on the implementation of Special Education 2000.
"This is the fifth patch-up job the Government has
been forced to announce for this policy. If they listened
more carefully to what people in the sector said, and acted
on their advice, they would not have to constantly play
catch-up," Trevor Mallard
