I think regardless of your opinion of the relative merits of the various high-school matriculation exams, none of the states will be relinquishing control of their system to the federal gov't any time soon.
I am very happy with the quality of the NSW HSC programme and cannot speak for the quality of any of the other States, but I would swap that in a second for a truly national curriculum/programme. IMO it is ridiculous for a nation of <25M people to have 5+ education systems that are not compatible. Russia has 1 for its huge landmass. France, Germany, England (and presumably many Asian countries) have 1 each and they have far more students than we do. Why can't we - because the Constitution says so... Bah! -Liam On 12/1/08, Bao-Loc Nguyen <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > "There are state politics and rivalries involved and in particular South > Australia and Victoria will refuse to go backwards to accommodate NSW" > > You're saying you think SA has a stronger system than NSW? > > Or that SA define going backwards as going forwards or vice versa > > > _______________________________________________ > Wikimediaau-l mailing list > Wikimediaaufirstname.lastname@example.org > https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l > > -- Email - [EMAIL PROTECTED] Phone - +61 (0)434 056 914 Skype - Wittylama Wikipedia - [[User:Witty lama]]
