AbstractImagine this: your child starts at the local public school, and all seems peachy until you realise that due to a number of factors, your kid’s school is fast filling up. You notice that it is also happening at all the local schools. Public school closures, rapidly rising student enrolment numbers, pop-up portable classrooms all point to a perfect storm of overcrowding and under-provisioning of public education - surely this situation could not be going on un-noticed by those who are charged with the administration, care and oversight of public education in our state?
