Remote Schools As Family Firms

The ICAC report into alleged corruption at Milingimbi School suggests that the Education Department has to make a major culture shift. The Education Department has given the principals of remote schools carte blanche, that is full discretionary power.

Many remote school principals have become nothing less than monsters. Principals with a dark paternalistic leadership style filled with nepotism, the need to control, greed, discrimination, opportunism, power, lust, revenge, bullying, vindictiveness and petty spite. An out of sight tyranny in a fiefdom created by the Education Department. Remote schools can be a dark paternalistic fiefdom.

No wonder teachers do not wish to work under such conditions. Who wants to be a serf?
