Special Assistance schools threatened with closureListen to the ABC Science Show InterviewSaturday 9 December 2017 12:48PM
Schools of the Eagle Arts and Vocational College in Broken Hill, Bligh Park and Kincumber face closure following a damning report by the NSW Education Standards Authority.  The Eagle Arts schools are Special Assistance schools which cater for students who don’t fit in or are rejected by the mainstream school system. An unconventional approach is taken to teaching and principal Gab McIntosh reports surprising results in algebra. But a recent inspection report found the schools noncompliant in a range of areas including staff, curriculum, buildings, child protection and financial reporting. If the report’s recommendations are adopted, the three schools will need to close.
