New South Wales Education Department - As Useless And Unworthy As Our Own.
Angela Cox yesterday said she was stunned by the comment which came after her son Ben was choked by a nine-year-old boy at Woodberry Public School, near Maitland, on the Central Coast.
"I was really annoyed the school hadn't done anything," she said. "(Department officer) Ian Wilson told me bullying builds character and it was a good thing."
Mrs Cox and her son Ben are suing the state, claiming the department was liable for the treatment of her son in 1995 and 1996, which left him depressed, anxious and reluctant to leave the house.
"I couldn't believe something like this could happen," she told the Supreme Court yesterday.
***** So our education department isn't the only totally incompetent one in this whole wide world. Apparently there are also specimens in other places who closely resemble our pegawai2 from the Jabatan Pendidikan, if not in skin colour at least in their attitudes, views and general stupidity.
