Education Policies of Interest

Three huge problems with the Australian education system have especially attracted my attention and made my blood boil in recent years:

The latter of these three problems creates enormous levels of injustice for several hundred ACT students every year, and undoubtedly constitutes one of the biggest scandals in the history of Australian education and public administration generally.  In short, the vast majority of Universities Admission Indices (UAIs) received by ACT Year 12 students in past years have been much lower than they should have been as a result of huge flaws and blunders that go right back to the mid 1970s when the ACT gradually left the NSW HSC system, and, as a result of these huge flaws, hundreds of ACT students have wrongly missed out on funded university places every year going back many many years.
