Year 7 students at Court Grammar School were tasked over the weekend with creating a brochure promoting a new Covid-19 law. The children were asked to come up with the law themselves, and were provided with some suggestions to help:
WTF.Yes you read that right, a school is suggesting to children that violation of medical freedom would be an appropriate law in Australia. A school is seeding the idea in the minds of 12 year olds that it might be ok to penalise protestors by law. This project is part of the HASS (Humanities and Social Sciences) curriculum at Court Grammar School. You can view the full project below. A parent from the school confirmed to me that her child did this project over the weekend.
The Department of Education’s response to my request for comment:”The WA Department of Education is the public school system. Court Grammar is not a public school, and any questions about an assignment should be directed straight to them.”They offered no further comment.My requests to the school for comment remain unanswered, however a person in my network called the school yesterday and spoke to Deputy Principal Mike Jenson, who confirmed that this HASS task is being taught at the school. He claimed that the suggestions were only suggestions and therefore that makes this task benign.Do you agree?If not, feel free to call Mike Jenson on 08 9526 5000 or email to [email protected] and tell him why you think he is mistaken.
Bit rich, coming from a "Stale, male and pale" dominated board....
