Education review about improving standards, not ideology

Jan 15, 2014 by

Education Minister Christopher Pyne’s appointment of Kevin Donnelly and Ken Wiltshire to oversee a review of the country’s education systems has seen some make the claim that the ‘culture wars’ have been reignited.

Suggestions that the education system is skewed to the left and that religion needs a more prominent place in the curriculum has created a predictable backlash on social media.

The plans have also drawn the fire of supporters of the previous Labor Government’s national curriculum, who claim the review is motivated by ideology.

But Dr Donnelly says that the review is necessary to improved Australia’s flagging standards in literacy and numeracy.
