DEEWR Spam About School Funding Report

Yesterday, I registered to attend the School Funding Forum on 22 February 2012 in Canberra, with Minister for School Education, Peter Garrett. The on-line registration system worked well and I received a prompt conformation. However, today the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) sent me a "School Funding Forum - Information pack" email with 7.4 Mbytes of attachments. The attachments are PDF copies of various documents about the school funding report. These documents are on the web and all the Department needed to have done was include a link to them. As a result the message is one thousand times larger than it need be. Hopefully administration of any new school funding program will be more efficient than this. If this was one of my students, they would be getting a "Fail" for this attempt at communication. ;-)
