Chile'Education Bill: An Example for Australia

Press Release 562

The battle for public education - free, secular and universal - is being fought in Chile by teachers and students. They are winning. Their example is an inspiration for supporters of public education in Australia.
The current policies of the Pyne/Nixon education ministers promise to impose a Chilean style voucher system on Australia – at the same time that Chile is fighting its way out of this grossly inequitable system.
Chilean education suffered grievously under Pinochet’s market oriented policies The dictator imposed the market ideology on Chilean education. In the same way our Lib/Labor politicians have imposed the Thatcher/ Reagan market ideology on education in this country.

Big Secularism and the City of God

Press Release 555

David Hastie promotes denominationalism as an Australian ideological sprawl in which any and every religion and religious school flourish at taxpayers expense. He accuses Marion Maddox of ‘Big Secularism’—the ‘determination to ban government support for religious activities’.

If so, she is in illustrious company: Thomas Jefferson and Founding Fathers of the American Constitution; Andrew Inglis Clark, major draftsman of the Australian Constitution; Henry Bournes Higgins and Founding Fathers who placed Section 116 in the Australian Constitution;[i] and Justice Lionel Murphy, dissenter in the 1981 DOGS case. Some might say, Christ himself.[ii]
