Thursday January 27, 2011

The rubber band was not co-operating by going limp, instead repeatedly springing back like the undead thing it is. I told the bird not to eat it but it didn't heed my advice, instead flying off with it for more private entertainment. I hate to think that if the bird did successfully subdue and swallow the rubber band, it could be the last thing it ever eats."

State schools need a helping hand

Tuesday January 25, 2011
VICTORIAN schools are not alone in facing skill shortages, but the impacts on students' opportunities have life-long consequences. Government schools, in particular, struggle to compete with the private sector since salaries have declined for decades relative to other professions. Teacher recruitment and retention have suffered accordingly. Governments have long failed to tackle this core problem of educational quality. Victoria's Coalition government, having wavered on its election promise to make the state's teachers the highest-paid in the country, is eyeing an alternative way to tackle skills shortages by involving business and industry in specialist high schools.
