Latest Shepparton Education Plan announcement shows Merlino is not listening


“Today’s unveiling of design plans for the proposed so-called super school by Education Minister James Merlino shows an increased desperation by the Minister and Member for Shepparton Suzanna Sheed to impose their plan that removes choice in education for families in Greater Shepparton.”

“The majority of the local community are against the one-school model and have called for the Shepparton Education Plan to be paused and greater community consultation carried out.”

“This announcement consists of nothing more than pretty pictures and provides nothing to ensure improved educational outcomes for Greater Shepparton secondary school students.”

“The Government propaganda released in conjunction with today’s announcement, referring to Shepparton’s iconic Queens Gardens as Queens Park shows just how out of touch the Andrews Labor Government is with the Greater Shepparton community.”

“With the new school expected to cost in excess of $120 million, the lack of further funding commitments indicates that it is not too late to review the Shepparton Education Plan.”

“The entire Greater Shepparton community welcomes investment into education for our children but it is clear that parents want choice and to be consulted properly on the future provision of education for their children.”

“I call on Mr Merlino to heed the wishes of the local community and pause the Shepparton Education Plan to ensure that proper consultation with the entire Greater Shepparton community is carried out.”
