The budget release last night did not bring a great deal of new information about education. Much of course we already knew. The Conversation has an update this morning on proposed changes for education, covering school, VET and HE funding. I have asked senior leaders in the school to assess the implications of this budget for schools – stay tuned.
Some surprises in other areas such as drug testing for welfare recipients. I’m guessing this proposal may feature in our conversation with Owen Bennett this evening at Pedagogy in the Pub, addressing the timely topic Why Governments Punish the Unemployed and How to Fight Back. I look forward to seeing many of you there.
