National cabinet’s message on schools is clear as mud

Scott Morrison’s passionate wish for students to again return to classrooms has been confused and muddied by the mixed messages from his national cabinet colleagues, who assume worried parents have time to analyse their nuanced comments in these unprecedented times.

The Prime Minister’s want for students and teachers across the country get back to school forms an integral part of the nation’s road out of the COVID-19 crisis, not only because it will benefit children but also boost workplace productivity, and in turn the economy.

Not only is he concerned students will miss out on valuable learning in front of professionals, but he wants to ease the burden on parents to allow them to return to work.

Amid headlines and news bulletins declaring the nation’s leaders are at odds over a return to school on Wednesday, they stressed they were “all on the same page”, despite delivering a very different message.
