PS For an evaluation of what a splendid education can do for you just look at the cabinet.

Even when it’s suggested that equality of opportunity in education is a noble pursuit and the right of every child, people like Christopher Pyne , when he was Education Minister, used to say it was class warfare and he ludicrously described the Gonski reforms as such. Mind you at the same time, he confessed to never having read the report.

Now years down the track we have the farcical situation where education is still a mess with the Coalition having a secret slush fund to top up the funding of the private school system while taking money from the Catholic School system.

Why is it so? Why do we deny every kids right to a decent education. You would think that even conservatives when they look into the eyes of the innocent child wouldn’t deny them an education equal to that of any child.

After all they could churn out capitalists who might vote for the. party. As it stands once my generation has passed on their voting pool will be very shallow.
