Stop Safe Schools v Save Safe Schools for Qld Parliament

Amy Remeikis reports in the Brisbane Times (10.3.16) on petitions being presented to the state’s Parliament calling either for the suspension or the continuation of the Safe Schools anti-bullying program.

‘It’s signatures at 30 paces, with Parliament being asked to ensure LGBTI and gender diverse anti-bullying resources remain available to Queensland schools – as well as suspend them.

‘Education Minister Kate Jones has been forced to defend the resources availability to Queensland principles on the Parliament floor, after her LNP counterpart called for their review.

‘Ms Jones refused, but the Federal Government complied to look into ‘concerns’ being raised by MPs critical of the program, such as Cory Bernardi.

‘… Both petitions close on 18 April.’
