Mr NEWBURY (Brighton):
With other major States developing plans to encourage young students back to school parents have begun to ask whether the Victorian Term 2 home schooling policy is practical.
Parents find juggling home, work and their children a full-time job at the best of times, let alone the current strategy of asking parents to work and be full-time teachers concurrently.
Certain schools have already begun to question the policy, after assessing the evidence, and decided to re-open their doors. The government needs a practical policy as it has begun to lose community support.
