Support parent’s right to higher education! #TEAMHUDSON

This petition had 147 supporters

Dannielle and her charming son, Hudson, attend classes once a week at Glendale TAFE as Dannielle studies her Bachelor in Early Childhood Education, but now their attendance is at risk!

In 2016, Dannielle pushed herself to complete her course work whilst pregnant, ensuring she stayed on track with her degree completion date. Now 5 months old, little Hudson attends class with his mum, as he is exclusively breastfed and has a strong bond with Dannielle. Hudson is a sweet natured child with a content disposition, he has never disrupted the learning of students.

However after an unjustified complaint (from someone not in Dannielle’s class), the possibility for parents to care for their children and complete their degree is now being questioned. Glendale TAFE are now reconsidering the allowance of student’s to bring their children to class. This change could mean that students miss out on completing their degrees and the opportunities they might bring! This doesn’t affect just one student, it affects us all!


  • We insist TAFE allows parents to bring their children to class when no other appropriate child-care arrangements can be made, where it does not compromise work health and safety requirements.
  • We insist TAFE supports and empowers students with young children to complete their education.
  • We insist TAFE provides equitable opportunities for all students.
