Labor government sees Australia fall behind

The “education revolution” has been watered down and reverted into a “back to basics reading blitz” for one million children.

There is a new proposal now for a three-year reading reform.Countries dominated by socialistic regimes tend to introduce long-term plans to catch up with the rest of the world.

If they concentrate their efforts on a narrow field, they can succeed for a short period of time. But once they start juggling issues like hot potatoes, there is no end to it. 

The best way to make progress is by a steady, natural process.

The reason why we are falling behind some other countries is that our federal Labor government is addressing problems in an inconsistent, neurotic way.
