    I'm glad to hear that he wants to improve on the failed legacy of his predecessor. The first challenge will be to focus upon the upcoming Parliamentary Inquiry into Students with a disability or special needs in New South Wales schools, and the widespread concern of allegations of abuse and discrimination in NSW Public schools. https://www.parliament.nsw.gov.au/committees/inquiries/Pages/inquiry-details.aspx?pk=2416

    Mr Stokes,
    Before deciding on building new schools, please look at renovating old schools and making them better to cater for this generation and for generations to come. Our schools especially schools in 2145 postcode need big upgrades in electricity (to be able to instal air conditioners in staffrooms & classrooms. Teachers & students won't be able to perform in terrible hot or cold conditions), working spaces, working environments & technology.
    Please listen.
