Gillard Government’s education bill flawed, Kevin Donnelly says

The Gillard government’s Australian Education Bill 2012, tabled in parliament last week, is a “command and control model of public policy” with all roads leading to Canberra, Dr Kevin Donnelly writes.

Dr Donnelly says this is illustrated by the fact that “we now have a national curriculum, national testing, national teacher registration and certification and national standards for teacher training.

“An approach that has been implemented in the USA and the UK over the last 10 to 12 years and that now governments are jettisoning.”

Dr Kevin Donnelly is the Director of the Education Standards Institute and also the author of Educating Your Child and Australia’s Education Revolution.
