OPINION: Publish education review or risk voting without all the facts and evidence


Concerned parent Ross Le Brun has called for the review of different secondary school and post-16 education models to be published.

"I am a parent of a four-year-old who is to start States education this year.

I want to know my representatives are ensuring all the island’s children get access to the best education we can build. 

I’d like to ask that you all support amendment 2 from Deputies Bury and Gabriel. 

You need to have all the facts and evidence gathered by the review to make informed decisions and not allow it to be withheld from you. Thousands marched in the “Pause and Review” for this evidence to be published.  

Publishing the review is not bringing two schools back! 

As much as anything else, the review involves detailed consultation with teachers and other stakeholders. 

It’s a lot of effort, time and taxpayers’ money that is otherwise going to be hidden from you.  

Voting against this amendment would be voting against making a decision based on all the facts and all the evidence. It would be continuing to let down all the less privileged children that the old selective system used to let down. 

Please support the Bury/Gabriel amendment to know you have done your best to make an informed decision and more importantly for the benefit of all the island’s children."
