Australian Catholic education group raps Opposition campaign proposals
August 20, 2010
On the eve of elections in Australia, the National Catholic Education Commission has released a warning that the proposed policies of the Opposition coalition would harm poor children.
The Opposition, which is striving to unseat the incumbent Labor government, has proposed $1.5 billion in education cuts. Therese Temby of the National Catholic Education Commission said that the funding is needed “to serve disadvantaged communities and to address the learning needs of students and families.”
