    It is not logical, or an appropriate use of tax payer funds to appoint a man as ill equipped, and unqualified as Abbott to such a role even in a symbolic capacity – but to give him free reign, empowering him to ‘overhaul’ a system developed over many decades, in which he has no demonstrated understanding is outrageous.

    Tony Abbott holds no qualifications or expertise in the area of education, and has a history of mismanagement and negative meddling when he has been in positions of power over Indigenous affairs previously.

    His appointment is nepotistic, seriously bad politics, and has the potential to be significantly harmful for Indigenous people and our educational future.
