Bugger the Schools & Bugger ERO


Bugger the Schools & Bugger ERO

"Bugger the teachers, bugger the schools and bugger ERO," said Peter
Osborne, the Libertarianz Spokesman to Deregulate Education today, in
response to a PPTA press release calling for ERO to get off the backs of
teachers and schools.

"Teachers and schools deserve all the flak they get while they continue to
ignore the obvious. They are just as consequentially ignorant as the poor
kids they teach, as they haven't the wit to acknowledge that state enforced
education IS the problem."

Osborne says, "For once though, I have to agree with the PPTA; ERO should
bugger off. They are driven by their own self-serving agenda and that of
politicians who make decisions for political reasons and the health of the
education sector be damned."

He says, "None of these groups will acknowledge that entrenched welfarism
and a hopeless state enforced education system is the foundation beneath
growing problems of youth violence, drug abuse, sexual abuse and gang
involvement. They force their ideas onto our children and their stunted
minds have reduced education to a stagnant, uninspiring monument to
mediocrity. Yet the same questions continue to surface. Why are kids going
truant? Why is depression so prevalent among our youth? Why are children
becoming more violent? The answer is because parents no longer have the
freedom to determine the education for their own children; the state does.
Also no one has the freedom to express their own benevolence; the state
does it for them. Hence beneficiaries do not have to face those who
subsidise their existence and they now see the benefit as a natural right.
These problems have been created by a state that has distorted
responsibilities and reality."

Mr Osborne concludes, "Libertarianz fully understands the disastrous
implications of an all encompassing Nanny State, as we have now. We won't
rest until the Ministry of Education is completely eliminated and
compulsory welfarism is scrapped. Parents will be handed back the
responsibility of determining their own children's education. The education
sector will be released from the agenda of politicians and bureaucrats to
pursue a meaningful and ever evolving teaching process. Institutionalised
welfarism will also be scrapped to allow those who truly wish to help
people to do so, from their own benevolence. Zero tax will allow people to
pursue all of the choices that we are denied today by those who think they
know better."
