School groups fail O’Farrell over budget cuts

An unprecedented coalition of 11 education groups representing public, independent and Catholic schools has accused the state government of evading its legal and ethical responsibilities to provide a quality education to all children.

A strongly worded letter with 11 signatures was sent to the Premier, Barry O'Farrell, as more than 4000 people gathered in Sydney on Sunday to protest against the government's $1.7 billion in education cuts.

The joint letter accuses the government of exercising a ''determination to evade its legal and ethical responsibilities of providing the highest quality of education to its young people''.

Signatories include John Collier, the NSW chairman of the Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia, Maria Pearson, the president of the NSW Association of Catholic School Principals, and Lila Mularczyk, the president of the NSW Secondary Principals' Council.
