In trying to convince my atheist goddaughter to embrace her Catholic schooling, I found an unlikely role model. I'd never thought of Greer as a chip off the old block of a convent education. Now I realised that that's exactly what she was.

Julia Gillard has not truly engaged with concerns from teachers,
principals, academics and parents regarding the overemphasis on NAPLAN-based school comparisons. For many teachers, the professional and only ethical thing is to oppose such moves.

The Sydney Anglican diocese is concerned that proposed ethics classes in schools might attract students away from
