I was looking for a political home after leaving the Liberal camp. Political parties named after individuals are not my style. Political parties with the word “sex” in their name I can’t ever see being in power. I’m not much of a petrol-head. The Greens I did consider because at least they fight for the welfare of asylum seekers. Clearly I did a little more research that I’m alluding to here, I just didn’t feel I’d found a political home.
Then I happened to notice that the founder of March in March, Tim Jones, had founded a political party. This is interesting, I thought to myself. I paid a visit to the website, and read the policy outlines.
Education – a vital investment
Education is a right for all, and is a vital investment in our people, our ideas and the progress of our society. We need a genuine education revolution at all levels, with more focus on nurturing creativity, providing our teachers with proper support and resources, and broadening the focus of what we teach, how we better engage students, and how we measure success in learning. Government needs to ensure all Australians have access to equitable and affordable educational opportunities. Investment in all levels of education will help us build a better Australia.
Yes, I agreed with that, I did. What did they have to say about climate and asylum seekers?
