$16 billion for schools … and it’s a huge job

On Friday 28th June Associate Professor Don Carter and I recorded the twelfth podcast episode for Series 2 of Talking Teachers.This episode features Federal Minister for Education Jason Clare.

Going to the Commonwealth Parliamentary Offices at 1 Bligh Street in Sydney to do the recording was a highlight – recommend a visit soon – the building was designed by Ingenhoven Architects (Germany) and Architectus (Australia).

During the recording I was struck by the minister’s preparedness to respond to our questions as they unfolded as opposed to a series of ‘talking points’. Often journalists are given answers by politicians to questions NOT asked. Not so here.

We enjoyed the experience and by all reports the minister did too.

 

EPISODE 12 WILL BE OUT SOON on UTS website – Holding page.
