I am writing to protest regarding your announcement regarding the future of Perth Modern school. As a parent of a child at the school, I have seen her grow and develop as a result of excellent teaching and facilities. To propose to move the school to an inner city location is an act of wanton vandalism
In opposition, you have constantly berated this government for the way that it has handled capital investment. Yet you have announced a plan without undertaking stakeholder consultation and apparently without seeking Department of Education and Department of Treasury input. Where is the business case, the independently verified costings, the in-principle lease agreement?
This election was, for me, about ALL the issues. However now it has become single issue. I will not vote for Labor if this policy is not put to a proper and independent assessment by those best placed to do so (Education, Treasury).
In three weeks time I will be casting my vote. A vote for Labor is not a possibility whilst this policy remains without clarification. I am urging the 1000 plus Perth Modern families, drawn from across the State, to make a similar stand. This is a tight election and you need votes in marginal seats to win government. Our 1000 families can make the difference between government and opposition. I urge you to consider that carefully.
