Ms Lee says spending $17 million on laptops for students without any idea of how they will be used to improve academic results is highly irresponsible. 

“Year in and year out, ACT schools perform below similar schools in other jurisdictions despite spending the highest per student in the country,” she says. 

“The government should prioritise solutions that strengthen academic performance and place ACT students ahead of the nation.”
