Support from both sides of the House

It seems that parliamentarians are keen to be seen to support the cause of gifted education this week. Let’s encourage them. We may benefit if they make a habit of it!

Here’s what Heather Roy, Associate Minister of Education, had to say in support of  gifted children on Sunday.  She hadn’t finished, either.  Here is what she had to say yesterday.

Trevor Mallard spotted an inconsistency between Heather’s words and what hapened in the parliamentary budget. Read what he had to say to her in parliamentary question time today here.

Now, if we can just get a few more of our MPs competing to do the right thing, and holding one another accountable, we might get somewhere!
