Last year in an act of pragmatic conniving Mike (Bamby) Baird did a deal with Fred Nile to buy his vote for the poles and wires sale.
Mike agreed to have the ‘ethics’ option removed from the information/choices sheet that state primary schools will be giving to parents of new enrolments. Ethics is still available at many schools but you will not be officially informed.
Please ask about this activity it has an age-graded professionally prepared syllabus which most children find challenging and fun. No opinions or values are offered by the teachers who present scenarios and pose questions. The children offer answers and initiate discussion.
It is not moral philosophy 101, more, ‘was the bilby mum right to wrongly criticise the wombats and what were the consequences?’
