Counting the Coalition’s failings (Advocate 26 01)

There are so many reasons to vote out the Coalition Government at the May election: energy policy and climate change, higher education and research funding, public broadcasting, treatment of refugees, the appalling level of the Newstart allowance.

Epidemic of invisible work (Advocate 26 01)

There’s an old saying that if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. The epidemic of academic over work is, in part, a data problem. We have no idea how many hours academics work, but anecdotally it’s a lot. More...

Why free TAFE matters (Advocate 26 01)

Thousands of Victorians started their free TAFE courses this year. This will change people’s lives for the better. It means, too, that public technical and further education is on the way to rebuilding as the focus of post school education, alongside public universities. More...
