Comment on Six-year-old banned from bush school: Grandmother by Ray.

@ Outraged: Why be so outraged without the facts. There are always two sides to every story, but your first reaction is that the system is racist. After firstly claiming its racist, your next question is: What’s behind this?
Is the principal white or black? If they are white, you fail to mention they have undertaken to make an effort to close the gap by working in such a remote community, and if she is black, it is hardly racism.
How pathetic you sound, tell the world how they treat us.
While you are at it, tell the world of all the funding that is received, tell them about how this principal could simply take a job in an affluent east coast or urban school, but chooses to instead to ensure education for remote Aboriginal kids.
I notice you say nothing about the ones that actually are attending this school.
Your poor bugger me attitude is a disgrace, and is part of the reason the gap will never close. What a shame.

Agreed Evelyn, but some of these are. WHS laws have failed this person.
Let’s hope she takes it to Worksafe NT, as there are certainly some breaches here.

Wow, so many nasty and uninformed comments here. Even Joel Flemming, one of the most knowledgable people we have has said that Remote 4WD training should be a part of any worker’s training before they go remote.
Ultimately it is the bosses’ responsibility to assess the hazard and manage the risk, and yes, the worker has the right to refuse unsafe work.
Unfortunately it does not always happen in the real world especially the NT, and workers are often victimised when exercising their rights, especially as there has been a substantial review into OHS in the Territory recently.

She’s not the only one Erwin, you would be amazed at some organisations that do exactly the same thing, except they do have a satellite phone.

Karen: It is simply using a noun verses an adjective, either is accpeptable, neither is disrespectful. Are there not more important things to worry about?

Evelyne, you have absolutely nailed it. Sadly the pandering virtue signallers that Matthew refers to will protect them from that and guarantee their spiral into a life of incarceration.
