What hasn’t been announced – Term 3 2022 School Attendance … let alone Term 4.

It is no secret that the new Prime Minister was a long term opposition spokesperson for education. He must have been champing at the bit to get in to the Minister’s role with note books full of researched ideas and advice from the very best.

Attendance is one measure of the quality of the system. Attendance data would have been expected to be released in December for Term 3 (and even that is the proverbial – “go down to the hardware store and ask for a long wait”).

It is hard to get school qualifications if you don’t attend.

This is where full attendance had got to in Term 2:

Yes – decile 1 was just over 20% and over-all deciles less than 40%.

Term 3 MUST be out soon.

I hope there are exceptions to Doulas Adams’ political rule.

“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”

― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
