How can we save our schools? (letter)


by John Kelly

News Weekly, March 26, 2005
Sir,

The atrophied and regressive (back-to-the-'70s) ideological distortion of contemporary formal education, evident in the Australian Education Union and Australian Curriculum Studies Association's "praxis" model and agenda, together with the Australian Council of Deans of Education's charter for Australian education (News Weekly, March 12, 2005), raises several critical questions:

(i) How long can the Federal Government afford to tolerate the now-systemic dumbing-down of Australia's students in the Labor-controlled states?

(ii) What is the most effective means of combating the neo-Marxist and postmodernist capture of our schools and tertiary institutions?

(iii) How can a traditional liberal-humanist curriculum, that equips students for informed and full democratic participation in our society, be maintained in the face of the current Gramscian "revolution of institutions from within"?

John Kelly,
