Election Survey - Victoria 2014 - Q4

Q4 - School Bullying

Bullying of any kind is never acceptable. But the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria "anti-bullying" program normalises homosexual and transgender behaviour. It could increase identity confusion, and has been linked with reverse bullying. By contrast, programs such as the CASSE Peaceful Schools program are successfully addressing the root causes of all bullying.

Would you recommend that schools replace the Safe School Coalition Victoria program with a program that encourages respect and courtesy for all?

Definitely not.

Labor has committed to expanding the Safe Schools Coalition program to all government secondary schools, and encouraging non-government schools to participate as well. It was founded specifically to ensure that all schools are safe and supportive places for same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse students, teachers and families. We value the aims of the program which is why we made a commitment to expand the program.

Liberal-National Party

The Coalition Government regards the safety and wellbeing of every student and teacher as paramount, and is investing millions of dollars into stamping out bullying in Victorian schools.

The Government will not mandate the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria program to run in every school, which is Labor’s promise, but will allow school communities to determine whether it is appropriate for their community.

A re-elected Napthine Government will deliver a $78 million expansion of the Primary Welfare Officer program to cover all state schools, and do an initial roll-out of the eSmart anti-cyber bullying program with the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.  It will provide $4 million for Bully Stoppers resources and programs, $2 million for professional development for teachers to deal with challenging behaviours, and $1 million to expand the school wide Positive Behaviour Support program by 79 schools, making a total of 220 participating schools.

Rise Up Australia

Yes definitely.
