I suspect I will be raving about the Department of Education and their campaign of “lies, lies and statistics” for some time to come. It just gets better and better.

In my last post, I had a brief look at country schools that are experiencing rapid enrolment growth. On of them was Boggabilla. I was suspicious as to how a town with a population of 1,181 could show enrolment growth of over 60%.

So I went to the ABS website and brought up the census stats for the town.
