Real guts

Ripper article itself from CATHERINE DEVENY  in the Age May 30.

If you want to send your kids to the best school, send them to the local, writes Catherine Deveny. I  met this bloke at a party a while back. He had been teaching at private schools for many years. “Life-long learning”, “independent thinkers”, “creative minds”. “That’s what the brochures say, but it’s all bullshit,” he spat, “The motto for our school should be: ‘open wide’.” I presume he meant the wallet… but Catherine sticks it to polies of both sides in not having the guts to set a real egalitarian agenda. How can they [Labor] say that they are committed to “fund all schools on the basis of need and fairness” and then say, “we will not cut funding to any school”?
