AUSTRALIAN VALUES ;
ANDREW ROBB'S INCOMPLETE LIST
On September 17, 2006, Andrew Robb released his Discussion Paper "Australian Citizenship- Much more than a Ceremony". This document contained an incomplete list of Australian values.
His list was as follows :
He also said that " an understanding of (the above values) would assist social cohesion and successful integration into the community.
Clearly, Andrew Robb' list is incomplete. It fails to mention freedom of religion, the secular state and separation of church and state. Moreover, it is not surprising that a private school product, Andrew Robb, failed to mention the chief agent for maximising social cohesion - the secular, open - to - all, public education system.
Andrew Robb should rectify the shortcomings outlined above in his published list and readers should refer to our Press Release 171 for further discussion of this matter. www.adogs.info/pr171.htm
