10 This letter will be written from a suburban constituent to her local member in 2020: I m writing because I can t really find a secondary school for my son Jahred in Year 7 next year. The closest school is a church school but we re not churchgoers. Anyway, we can t afford fees like that. The closest public school was closed down in Another was made selective. There is a good school in the next suburb but it became one of those independent public schools a few years ago. They interviewed Jahred but now they say that they can t cater for his special needs. There is a music academy four suburbs away but he is really better with his hands. Of course there is the comprehensive school near the shops but I don t want him in with the wrong sort, if you know what I mean. Anyway, he doesn t mix with many of the kids that go there. They re not like us. Mum tells me that in her day there were plenty of good schools, and grand-dad grew up in the bush where all kids went to the local school. Everyone now talks about choice but what choices do I have?
