Message From Oz, Ready to Welcome Joel

    Norm,
    Thank you for the nice run you gave SOS today. I hope we can deliver some uncomfortable moments for Joel. We have done a lot of work briefing several journalists who will attend his address to the National Press Club here in Canberra next Tuesday.

    The right wing the Centre for Independent Studies (which is funded by major Australian and international corporations) published a report here yesterday supporting school reporting and league tables (see http://www.cis.org.au/). It is an appallingly slipshod report.

    It is interesting how much publicity a large well-funded organisation like this can get for basically shoddy work while a substantive report like the SOS study of NYC results goes unreported. Yesterday, the Sydney Morning Herald gave the CIS report's author, Jennifer Buckingham, space for an opinion piece. Yet, SOS has been unsuccessful in its request to have an opinion piece published on NYC.

    However, I did get a little run in the Melbourne Age yesterday in response to the CIS report
    (http://www.theage.com.au/national/report-cards-would-improve-failing-schools-20081119-6blv.html ) and also in today's Canberra Times, but the article is not online.

    cheers
    trevor
