From Education Revolution to ...???.....well frankly to not one.

It was back to school for most school children this week, which reminds me that is was not only Kevin Rudd but also Julia Gillard who really pushed the government line of the need for an Education Revolution.

So what comes next you might well ask, after BER and Education Revolution what does the Gillard 2010 government have to offer education?

First Peter Garrett is announced Minister, Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth , not a revolution.

Unfairly tainted with some of the legacy of the insulation batts farce which we can now realise not all that was the Minister's fault but largely the fault of the poor management and administration by Cabinet and the public service. Sure Peter Garratt lost his Minister ship position for a short while, but what happened to the people who really failed the public ignoring concerns a Minister had raised?

Did they get sacked, or follow Kevin Rudd into Foreign Relations? … Or simply stay working in their positions in the Public Service administration of important government matters, virtually untouchable no matter what mistakes are made, it doesn't seem right does it.

  1. Here's what Dr Kevin Donnelly says on this topic, while most of us might take a passing interest in how this all happens, Dr Donnelly knows the education like Masterchef knows food prep.

    He's the education expert many turn to when they want to know and here are his comments on this Ministerial choice.
