Australian post-school education in the age of Trump

January 17, 2017

My new blog post on “Australian post-school education in the age of Trump” has been published by Open Forum.

The post addresses the question: “With the upcoming inauguration of Donald J. Trump as US President on January 20th, what ‘spill-over’ impact will his presidency have on Australian vocational education and training (VET)?”

You can read it here on Open Forum or here on the Community Colleges Australia website, under the title “Australian VET in the age of Trump”.

Indigenous imprisonment one of top 10 blog posts in 2015

December 27, 2015

This falls into the category of “shameless self-promotion”.  My blog post entitled “Indigenous imprisonment in Australia: a crisis of mass incarceration” (Open Forum, 12 March 2015) was one of the “top 10 of 2015” for the Open Forum blogging website.

It’s more than self-promotion, though.  It is a good indication that there is an interest, perhaps a hunger even, for discussion about that topic.  More on Indigenous Australian as well as African-American criminal justice to come in 2016.
