The SSU made sure that I couldn't prove manipulation in the first instance by destroying the original answer sheets and withholding or loosing other relevant information. They knew that they could close the matter on the basis of that without addressing any other issues or allegations in relation to the process as they could just say that the allegations could not be substantiated. Their tactics to keep the matter focused on the tests and marks worked because it took the attention away from the fact that:
1. After the selection commitees met and awarded my daughter a composite score of 232.19 see here and here Magda Pollack accessed my daughters results and changed the score, under the guise of an error in calculation, to a lower score of 214.26 so that she would not be successful for the school of her choice. That lower incorrectly calculated score was then presented to the Appeals panel for them to make their decision see here . We know that Magda Pollak changed the score because we received stuck to the letter advising of the test results a copy of a data file dated 4 September that showed the changing of the scores by Magda Pollak -see here . The legidimate data file produced under FOI and dated 17 Sept 02 shows the higher score of 232.19 as awarded by the Selection Commitee not the lower score as changed by Magda Pollak see here .
2. After the selection commitees met and awarded my son a score of 213.33 see here Magda Pollak accessed my sons results and changed the score to 199.92 and removed him from the Offer list and put him on the reserve list. The data file shows two scores see here.
One would imagine that it would be highly unlikely that two different selection commitees on different days for the same year would both calculate my children's scores incorrectly and they would both need to be changed to lower scores?
3. Magda Pollack didn't put my youngest daughters application before the Selection Commitee despite saying in submissions that the Selection Commitee determined the application instead she lied about the IQ test and the results of my daughters school reports so that my daughter would not be considered.
There are mirespresentations and evidence of manipulation, bias and misconduct throughout the whole process for all my children.
This is only a snap shot of what has happened but at the end of the day the reality is that the DET have failed in their duty of care and breached their code of conduct and the complaint handling system and process designed by our Governments is designed to cover up and protect public servants and by extension or Government. That they can do that and get away with ti is a concern and ensures that our children are not protected.
