Young, dumb, and full of . . . . cash?

6 04 2005

Well, Howard’s battlers have been taking a hammering this week: interest rates increasing, a slowing economy . . . and now the release of a Monash University study which suggests that those fantastic and fantastically expensive private schools which promise to bestow upon their little darlings the Judaeo-Christian values and “superior” education that public school students don’t get, actually disadvantage those little darlings once the training wheels are off in first-year university.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the “intellectual weakness of Australian conservatism” Gerard Henderson likes to talk about.
