WA government is about to axe the School of the Air Program.

School of the air had its beginning back in 1948 and migrated to most states.
You can read about it here;

We urge you to sign the petition below and save our outback kids, if this is allowed in WA you can guarantee it will spread across the country.

After pressure from people power objections the WA State Government have done a backflip on closing SOTA.

People Power, it just goes to show that it can be done. Well done to everyone.

This is the beginning of the email I received today from Suzannah (Partnership for the Outback)

"Today we've had fantastic news: School of the Air has been saved!

Thank you for sending a message in support of School of the Air - the McGowan Government has listened to the voice of Western Australians like you and acknowledged that their education cuts went too far.

We reckon saving School of the Air deserves a big thumbs up for people power!"
