James Merlino’s ministership of the Department of Education and Training has been a disaster for students with disabilities. Mr Merlino made many promises at the beginning of his term, and for every year he has been in charge, the situation for students with disabilities continues to be fraught with lack of education, abuse and neglect, with the Department of Education treating parents of students with disabilities with absolute contempt. Mr Merlino has failed to respect parents, and sends every complaint he receives straight to the Legal Division of the Department of Education.

Parents of students with disabilities want respect and strength-not someone who capitulates to the Department of Education at every turn.

Please Premier Andrews, put someone in charge of education who actually cares and stop the suffering of children with disabilities and their parents.
