The Aussie school kids left to fend for themselves after their parents fled to Syria to join ISIS

Principals are struggling to deal with the students and parents who are falling under the sway of radical Islam, according to a group representing educators.

The Australian Principals Federation has welcomed the Victorian government’s move to introduce new measures to deal with the growing problem in schools.

A state education spokesman said the department was working closer with police and had nominated staff in regional officers to work with Victoria Police counterparts ‘to provide advice and support to schools’.
