Parents Victoria also posted to it's facebook page 7/10/15 - "it is disappointing to read the commentary with blame seemingly solely directed at parents when PV receives similar accusations against principals and schools, just as often.  PV can demonstrate willingness to work with others on this issue in advancing the agenda of parent school partnerships.  To date, these offers of collaboration have not been taken up by other stakeholders.  PV will continue to actively pursue solutions to work with others to ensure respectful, independent, realistic and fair outcomes are achieved for all in our public system.  We hope to see the appointment of an independent schools commissioner soon to facilitate faster outcomes, which will alleviate much of the stress currently caused to all parties."

Parents Victoria applauds the Education Minister for putting the interests of all Victoria's public school children first by removing SRI from core curriculum time.  PV has campaigned long and hard, alongside others, to make our public schools inclusive.  We are glad the government listened.  

Parents Victoria supports the proposed Respectful Relationships program.  We see the need to educate students about equality and world beliefs.
