The federal Government’s ‘Education Revolution’ has been met with great debate, as have calls for greater national consistency in school curriculum. Promoted as a ‘key platform for productivity growth, this education revolution seeks to improve the qualitative and quantitative investment in the skills of the workforce – driven in part by [a] $11 billion Education Investment Fund’ (Rudd, 2008).
