Letters: Teaching infrastructure


by Michael Nelms

News Weekly, September 8, 2001

Sir,

Economic rationalism has resulted in the substantial economic polarisation of society, an escalating and concerning trend now emerging in many nations.

One way to redress this imbalance is through the strengthening of essential social infrastructure via public education and health.

Thus, it was heartening to see Education International (EI), representing 25 million teachers from around the world, take a stand recently and reject the WTO agreement declaring education to be a tradable commodity.

The EI congress opposed the "commodification" of education and demanded public education for all.

Please take note, Messrs Howard and Beazley.

Michael Nelms,
East Malvern, Vic
