Finally - The Education Revolution

kevin_rudd.jpgDaily Telegraph - THE Rudd Government will axe a $1.2 billion program which has allowed schools across NSW to upgrade toilets, landscape their grounds and improve facilities. The Investing in Our Schools scheme - one of the most popular policies of the former Howard government - will not be continued after the money runs out this year. Angry primary principals are seeking an urgent meeting with new Federal Education Minister Julia Gillard at which they are expected to voice a strong complaint about the decision. "Under this scheme a little bush school could get equal access to funds.
Well, he promised a revolution yes, but he never said anything about it being a 'good' revolution. As Mark Steyn says about real revolutions - "They’re messy, your cities get torched, the economy collapses, much of your talent flees. Ask the many peoples around the world for whom revolution means not a lame-o Sixties poster above your desk but the carnage and horror of the day before yesterday." I wonder if all the leftie schools that put up the "Society not an Economy" placards are regretting their scorn of the previous government now, while they contemplate their coming funds totaling zero dollars and zero cents. Perhaps now they might learn the hard way that without an economy, you can't have much of a society.
