Jim Belshaw’s post for Thursday, January 11, 2007, Australia’s Universities – a personal Mea Culpa is an important contribution to the Australian education debate. If you are at all interested in the trajectory education policy and education funding have taken over the past few decades, you must read this very honest post from someone who was very deeply involved. It is better than most of what you will see in the media on the subject.
Jim spent four days writing that post. I am not surprised. Because it is such an important overview of policy changes we labour under today, because there is quite a profound set of educational values behind that overview as well as intimate knowledge of how and why policy has gone the way it has, I hope what Jim says is noticed by teachers and education administrators — and by politicians.
