Aussie Guvment skuls
There's a raging debate going on over on Tim Blair's blog about public schools in Australia. Apparently they aren't much better than US public skuls, I mean schools. Prime Minister John Howard seems to have gotten himself even further onto the badside of the Aussie left by criticising their indoctrination institutes.
PM queries values of state schools
"'Some schools think you offend people by having nativity plays,' Mr Howard said. 'I think that it's a reflection of the extent to which political correctness overtook this country, particularly through the teaching unions, which I think are a bit out of step.
"'People are looking increasingly to send their kids to independent schools for a combination of reasons. For some of them, it's to do with the values-driven thing; they feel that government schools have become too politically correct and too values-neutral.'"
