Australian Greens Education spokesperson Senator Mehreen Faruqi has said that Alan Tudge’s appointment as Education Minister is a disturbing development.
Senator Faruqi said:
“Anyone who a federal court judge has found to have acted criminally is not fit to be a minister of the government.
“It’s no surprise that this is the sort of ‘talent’ the Prime Minister wants to elevate in the government’s efforts to defund and privatise education.
“This disturbing appointment shows how little the government values the education system.
