Not teaching the three ‘Rs’ is ‘rong’

Not teaching the three ‘Rs’ is ‘rong’

Dopey ‘Dubious’ Daley fibbing his way to NSW election day supports school children marching in the streets demanding the abolition of CO2 instead of going to shcool. The last demonstration held on a school day showed many kids waving posters with simple words spelled ‘rongly’. Any teacher skipping school should have their pay dicked. Instead of brainwashing our kids with Gronie crup, brianwash them with ‘life skills’ to becime cintrobuting citizens rather than zombies on Centrelink.

NSW Labor leader Michael Daley has praised students who plan to strike over inaction on climate change, describing it as a “demonstration of young leadership” and a “great opportunity” to “realise their own personal power”. In a strong endorsement of the strike planned for Friday, Mr Daley said young people had a “democratic right” to protest as he rejected criticism over whether it was appropriate for an alternate premier to be encouraging students to skip school.

‘Demonstration of young leadership’: Daley backs student climate strike

Thousands of students protested in Sydney’s Martin Place against the government’s inaction on climate change last November.

“I support these young people and their action. It’s a demonstration of young leadership. Leadership that we need badly,” Mr Daley said on Wednesday.

“They are inheriting from us a world that is, at best, precarious. They don’t have a microphone and they don’t have money like the big end of town. But they do have a democratic right to assembly. They do have a right to protest.”

Thousands of students are expected to walk out of classrooms around the country on Friday to take part in the School Strike 4 Climate campaign. The event at Sydney’s Town Hall is expected to be one of the largest rallies in the country on Friday.

In a similar strike in November  thousands of students descended on Sydney’s Martin Place, waving placards and demanding action on climate change.

In doing so, they ignored the instructions of Prime Minister Scott Morrison and NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes who urged students to stay in school.

Mr Daley staked his support for striking students during a speech to the National Press Club, where he conceded he was likely to face criticism on his stance.

“I think there is a great opportunity for young people on Friday to realise their own personal power,” Mr Daley said.

“I might be criticised for backing them but, you know what, we’re at a crossroads now and we need them.

“We need their messages to be heard up the tree, so the grown-ups can listen to their disappointment and their criticism of our lack of leadership.”

Mr Daley’s comments come as a new ReachTELL poll revealed climate change was a pressing concern for most NSW voters, with 57.5 per cent of voters saying it would impact on their decision about who to vote for on March 23.

With prepolling already under way and just 10 days until voting day, Mr Daley used his Press Club address to champion Labor’s policies on climate change, while attacking his opponents as climate sceptics.

“[Should] I be elected, NSW will have its first minister for climate change to lead our state’s fight to protect the future of our children and their children,” Mr Daley said.

“On this issue, the people of NSW have a clear, unequivocal, choice. They can vote for Labor, a party committed to tackling climate change, or the Liberals and Nationals, the party that dare not speak its name,” Mr Daley said.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Tuesday restated her government’s support for action on climate change.

“We’ve had a consistent position since we’ve been in government, that climate change is real and that as a government we need to do everything we can to deal with it and we have been,” she said.

“For example, NSW boasts the largest renewable projects in Australia, so we are demonstrating how to get the balance right, how you secure your energy, how you manage to keep downward pressure on household prices and how you tackle climate change, and I’m proud of that.”

    The ‘tackling climate change’ hysteria has been drummed into susceptible young minds and they have climbed on the bandwagon. Ask any details about what all the mania is about or even if they know what ’emissions’ are, most wouldn’t have a clue. It’s a day off school and they might be on the news.
    Just have to hope that another looney lefty in the form of Daley doesn’t get up.

    ’tis very sad to see our children act in this way without being taught how to use research tools to enable themselves to discover actual facts which may or may not support their teacher imposed views.

    For example, my grand-daughter come home from school not that long ago, talking about Global Warming (Climate Change), how bad Donald Trump is and such. I guided her to research tools and let her at it. A week later, she comes to me and told me ‘I found out the teachers are wrong, and I can prove it’. This is what our children should be taught, how to research and think for themselves.

      Well done P/Pete. A few years ago I was able to direct some First Year Uni students to the case against Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth. This happened in the UK where it was ruled the documentary. was more political than scientific.

      SERIOUSLY well done, PP!!
      Good work!

    A vast majority of these kids won’t even know why they are protesting! It’s just a day off school! Bad enough that some teachers and parents should condone it but as for the potential leader of NSW endorsing it makes my blood boil.

    Our children are way behind other countries in spelling, grammar, arithmetic and science. They are devoid of any knowledge of history and general knowledge and yet ignorant union bred standover merchants such as Daley believe it is OK for school children to wag school in order to participate in protests.
    It is almost inconceivable that there are voters out there who would be quite happy to have a union controlled government with an arrogant brain-dead sock puppet like Daley at the top of their totem pole.

    The Parents should demand that the children are in school, not marching in some street, when a child gets hurt and sues the education department for lack of care. This will happen , duty of care ,where is it

      Trouble is, Lorraine, it is quite possible in these times that the parents agree with Daley and are prepared to let their children protest.

    This is bloody minded abuse of these school kids. To fool them into depriving hours of education – a loss to themselves – in support of a Great Big Scientific Lie sits right with the brainwashing of the Hitler Youth. Daley should be publicly challenged never to drive a car, nor take an aeroplane flight ever again, and thus reduce his carbon footprint for the sake of the planet. He should be challenged to show by example, not make the likes of children be deprived of their right of education for his miserable election campaign.

    Daley does not give a toss about the kids, he sees a perfect political grandstanding opportunity to gain some kudos from the Left.

      And THAT’S about the size of it. All summed up in 1 sentence.
