AUSTRALIA is spending more and more on school education – yet students’ results are deteriorating compared with other countries.
Results at Australia’s Catholic and independent schools are better than most government schools.
Donald Trump recently promised to commit $20 billion towards a program called “School Choice” – families to receive vouchers ensuring that the money follows the child to whatever school the parents choose.
Mr Trump says: “School choice is the civil rights issue of our time.”
Good thinking, Australia might do well to follow his example.
