Abbott’s “Better Outcomes” needs long-term vision

Australia may be a leading exporter of educational services, but the use of technology in our classrooms is still light years behind. Fixing that requires action not words.

Recently, the Prime Minister Tony Abbott called for turning “good intentions into better outcomes” with respect to indigenous education and for ending what he rightly labelled “the tyranny of low expectations.”  While his words were a powerful call to action for an important, and historically under-served, portion of our community, the call needs to be broadened.

Put simply, addressing the dire educational and competitive realities faced by  Australia today require bold and comprehensive action driven by a long-term vision.
