Comment on Bright students to take a hit in government cut-backs by Ryan Andrews.

Couldn’t agree more. It’s high time we started focussing not just on students who can afford private schooling.
I personally know several young people who will be at a severe disadvantage due to the cuts being made on public education.
Instead of putting money into primary and transitionary schools, why not give older students more of an opportunity to explore the fields they’re interested in?
Having teachers available for specialist subjects in high school is crucial, especially when the online courses are as inadequate as they appear to be. I hope to see changes for the better in the near future.
