Looming teacher shortage over mandate could see class sizes double

Class sizes could double, important subjects be scrapped and schools in rural and remote locations be forced to close as a result of the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s new teacher and school support staff COVID-19 vaccine mandate, Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) MPs have warned.

The new mandate, announced in the Queensland Parliament this morning, will apply to private and public schools and include teachers, support and administration staff, volunteers and those entering for supply and maintenance.

Robbie Katter fears thousands of critical teaching and support staff would be lost to Queensland schools as a result of today’s decision…

KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said Queensland was already facing a teacher shortage, the impacts of which were more acutely felt in the regions where schools consistently struggled to recruit and retain quality staff.

He said he feared thousands of crucial teaching and support staff would be lost to Queensland’s schools as a result of today’s decision, and called for all governments to respect individual choice when it comes to vaccines.

“We are seeing breath-taking arrogance on the issue of mandates right across our country,” Mr Katter said.

“Our vaccination rates are outstandingly high and continuing to rise – education and not coercion is what’s needed from our leaders on this topic.

“The KAP has always encouraged Queenslanders to talk to their doctors and make this personal choice based on the best medical advice available to them.

“What most Western nations around the world have avoided, even at the height of terrible outbreaks of this disease, State Premiers are racing to impose on its people and the school staff mandate is simply the latest example in Queensland.

“The KAP absolutely respects there are unprecedented risks to our health system and communities at present, and this is why we have pushed our pro-choice message on vaccines alongside the use of regulated, rapid antigen testing for those who remain unvaccinated.”

Most other Australian states have mandated vaccines for school staff in recent months, but these have been met with a mixed response and have heightened concerns of unsustainable staff shortages. 

For example, there are fears the NSW mandate that came into effect on November 9 will result in the loss of more than 2,500 school staff members.[1]

KAP Deputy Leader and Hinchinbrook MP Nick Dametto said many Queenslanders who personally supported vaccines did not support mandates.

He said his office had been over-run with complaints about the mandates, despite his electorate being one of the most highly-vaccinated in the State.

The KAP holds a pro-choice position on COVID-19 vaccines, and is opposed to mandates.

It has previously proposed the use of regular, rapid antigen tests, more than a dozen of which have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, as an alternative for the small minority who for personal reasons have not been vaccinated against COVID-19.

To date, Premier Palaszczuk and the Labor Government has refused to consider this option.

Editor: The best outcome would be for thousands more parents to homeschool their kids.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. “The KAP has always encouraged Queenslanders to talk to their doctors and make this personal choice based on the best medical advice available to them…”. Doctors will always urge clients to be vaccinated. They are all in this scam together, all the way up the hierarchy to the Rev 17 “Woman Who Rides the Beast”, seated in the .”City of 7 Hills”. Whose side is KAP on?

  5. “Editor: The best outcome would be for thousands more parents to homeschool their kids.” 100% agree – lets get the sacked staff – all of them – and give them jobs in our communities – teachers for homeschooling – mechanics – plumbers – get up a community site and all work together.. And lets STOP banking and using the enemy services – Put you money in a local credit union – Don’t use Bunnings Coles etc – shop IGA and local – use cash etc We need to organize like unions – without the corruption.. Aside – how spineless have the unions been – disgrace..

  8. And when does the Illegitimate Criminal Government care about our children. They have abused them for the Last 2 Years with their fake news narrative and now murdering them under the premise of saving them from a fake Covid narrative. So what is going to change. Parliament are full of of Paedophiles along with the other Public Servant Organizations. So my question; what is going to change? Do you honestly think they give one hoot about the teacher shortage!
