Students being told to ‘deconstruct’ Australian flag is ‘divisive’

The IPA’s Bella D’Abrera says students being told to ‘deconstruct’ the Australian flag is part of a “wider problem in our society” where there is a minority of people who seem to “hate” Australia.

It comes as state and federal education ministers in Australia have slammed lessons put together by a third party and promoted by the NSW Education Department.

Students are asked to examine the Australian flag in part of a project to ‘deconstruct’ symbols of Australia.

"Unfortunately, these are the people who are writing the school curriculum, these are the people who are unelected bureaucrats sitting in the Department of Education in New South Wales," Ms D’Abrera told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“It’s divisive, it’s critical race theory…it’s everything that they shouldn’t be taught.”
