南澳自由党承诺取消”安全学校”计划 South Australian Liberals promise to axe Safe Schools program

南澳自由党承诺,如果在3月17日的选举中获胜,将取消在该州中学施行的有争议的"安全学校"(Safe Schools)计划,并取而代之以更广泛的,主要针对社交媒体攻击的反欺凌计划。

此前新州和塔斯马尼亚州政府已经抛弃了“安全学校”计划,并采用了更广泛的计划来打击欺凌行为。

随着联邦政府于去年十月份结束对各州反仇恨同性恋计划的资助,那些希望继续该计划或采用自己的计划的州政府将自行为其提供资助。

包括南澳大利亚州、ACT、维多利亚州在内的工党执政的州已经表示愿意继续资助安全学校计划,其中维州政府承诺全面资助自己制定的计划。

昆士兰州州长Annastacia Paluszczuk已经排除资助该计划。想参加计划的学校需要自己提供资金。

A controversial Safe Schools program aimed at tackling bullying and self-harm in South Australian secondary schools will be scrapped by the Liberal party should it win the March 17 election, replaced by a broader anti-bullying program primarily focused on online attacks.

The proposed move follows that of Liberal governments in NSW and Tasmania, which have wound back similar programs and implemented a broader approach to counter bullying.

Federal funding for state-based anti-homophobia programs ended in October, leaving state governments responsible for funding it if they wanted it to continue or to draft their own programs.

Labor states have shown a willingness to continue funding the Safe Schools program, including South Australia and the ACT, and Victoria where the Daniel Andrews government committed to fully funding its own version of the program.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Paluszczuk has ruled out funding the program, leaving schools who want to take part to fund their involvement through their own finances.

去年,南澳工党政府在推出“安全学校”计划时引起了很多家长的愤怒,该州反对党教育部发言人John Gardner说,“广泛的以证据为基础的反欺凌计划”会更有利于保护学生。

他说:“(工党目前实施的计划)非常狭隘,只针对LGBTI学生的特殊需求。“

“LGBTI学生是我们需要照顾的一个重要群体,但他们不是唯一遭受欺凌的学生,而且还有很多其他更广泛的学生遭受欺凌的原因“。

南澳教育部长Susan Close表示,自由党的政策“实质上采纳了已经在学校实施的措施,除了假装欺凌同性恋行为不存在”。

她说:“这意味着他们(的政策)没有增加任何东西,他们只是拿走东西。”

澳大利亚保守党议员Dennis Hood欢迎自由党的计划,他说现有的(安全学校)计划“利用州政府资金来推进激进的性别理论”。

他说:“我们的办公室已经被父母,祖父母和教育工作者淹没,他们不希望子女在课堂上被教授这一理论。“

The SA Labor government drew ire from many parents when it launched its own version of the Safe Schools program last year and now opposition education spokesman John Gardner says a “broad evidence-based anti-bullying program” is better placed to protect students.

“It (Labor’s current program) has got a very narrow focus in dealing with the particular needs of students identifying as LGBTI,” he said.

“Now, students identifying as LGBTI are an important cohort that we need to look after, the statistics show that they are more vulnerable than the broader student cohort but they’re certainly not the only students who are suffering from bullying, and there are a whole range of reasons why students suffer from bullying in our schools.”

South Australian Education Minister Susan Close said the Liberal policy is “essentially to adopt everything that’s already occurring in schools but to pretend that homophobic bullying doesn’t exist”.

“This means that they’re not adding anything, they’re simply taking something away,” she said.

Australian Conservatives MP Dennis Hood welcomed the Liberal plan, saying the existing program “actively promotes radical gender theory using state government funding”.

“Our offices have been inundated with parents, grandparents and educators who did not want their children taught this theory in the classroom,” he said.
