Victorian Schools $28 Million Slush Fund Contributed To VCAT Claims
By Alan J. McDonald
The Age reported on a secret $28 million slush fund operated by high ranking Victorian education officials from a 2011 audit. This audit may alert to more than one dysfunction in the Education Department.
Teachers for many years have been complaining about poor governance and heavy handed actions by schools against them as individuals. McDonald Murholme has noticed over many years a very combative attitude by the Education Department. Too many employment law claims are being made, especially through VCAT.
