    I would like to see continued support for tuition-free independent schools as part of the Green Party platform. They are doing amazing things as leaders of the new models of education, and they do it without charging any tuition to families. Not all private schools are created equal, and I believe these incredible programs are at risk unless someone brave enough steps up to support them.

    The policy is high-level only, found in the published document under ‘Resilience’ – I like that we recognize child-care and education as separate considerations, although for many families of course, both are needed. I don’t want my children’s education and care negotiated by unions on behalf of teachers. I want flexibility in the education system to allow for strengths and needs in our communities to be recognized, including the mentoring skills and infrastructure that exists here. The industrial model of education and care can evolve now to allow for choice to meet the individual needs of children and families.
