Stalinism in education in Australia 2013: Michael Smith News

Michael Smith News

I think that one of the great strengths of our Commonwealth comes from competition.   You get it in State of Origin and other sports - but it's at play in all manner of things.   Education should be one of them.   Continuous improvement year after year, driven by competition.    Who's doing best, let's see how we can use that to improve our system.......

The Gillard alternative is that someone in Canberra knows best.   The bureacracy will be better, it will always get it right.   It will know what's needed to educate an aboriginal child on a remote settlement and what's best for the private school children at Ascham and what's needed to maintain classroom discipline in Sydney's Muslim-cultured south-west.
