The Director-General of the Australian State of New South Wales' Department of Education has had her holiday ruined by parties unknown who gained access to her email account and used it to send a message critical of her political masters.

New South Wales has cut funding to some areas of public education, a decision that has drawn much criticism from educators and the wider community.

An email purportedly sent by Director-General Dr Michele Bruniges and despatched to all schools and technical colleges in the State saying the government was “dismantling” technical education was therefore explosive.

The email signed off with an even hotter comment, namely:

“I can only hope that with enough formal protesting to the Ministers office, sensibility will prevail and that public education is not the victim of this short sighted NSW Government vision.”

Education Minister Adrian Piccoli has told the AAP newswire that the mail is a fake, and that Dr Bruniges could not the source as she was on holiday at the time it was distributed. He's therefore loosed all the appropriate dogs to chase down the malfeasant an ensure the book is thrown at them. ®
