2017 WA State Election Position Paper
On the 11th of March 2017, Western Australia will hold its State Government election. The election period provides an important opportunity for WACSSO and its affiliates to advocate their position on key issues to political candidates, members and parties.
This document sets the position of WACSSO on several key issues pertinent to education in WA.
The issues listed in this position paper are:
- School Funding, Resourcing and Support
- School populations
- Wellbeing and support
- Independent Public Schools
- Community Engagement
- School fees, contributions and charges
- Information Communication Technology
WACSSO has requested responses from each of WA's main political parties. These results will be made into a report card. More information to come.
We encourage P&Cs to use this position paper as an advocacy aid within their local electorates on education issues relevant to their school community.
