Shadow Education Minister Michelle O’Byrne said the State and Federal Governments need to get out of the way and allow for data around students with a disability to be released.
“There is no reason why the number of students in our schools who live with a disability cannot be disclosed,” Ms O’Byrne said.
“The argument that this information could strain state and federal relationships makes no sense.
“What are the Liberals desperate to hide?
“The Tasmanian Disability Education Reform Lobby is right to be extremely disappointed by the Liberal Government’s decision.
“All the lobby is asking for is proper disclosure of statistics.
“It’s ridiculous that they’re being kept in the dark.”
