He has asked two critics of the current curriculum – former teacher and ex-Liberal Party staffer Kevin Donnelly, and University of Queensland Professor Ken Wiltshire – to review what is taught in Australian schools.

It seems the surprise announcements have been reserved for 2014, and they’ve started trickling out.

Overnight the Commission of Audit setup by Mr Abbott has revealed it’s received a submission that would see Doctors charging patients $5 for visits. The Government has confirmed it is one of several new fees it’s currently considering :: Read the full article »»»»
