Brace for (not much) impact

After three weeks as education minister, Dan Tehan has said something about universities, but not much, issuing a statement paraphrasing the OECD’s new report on member country education efforts.

“In higher education, the government is focussed on better targeting resources to demand and need, increasing transparency and accountability and improving opportunities for regional students,” Minister Tehan says.

Good-o, but just how is it “increasing transparency and accountability?” Former minister Simon Birmingham promised that 2018 would be the year of developing metrics measuring undergraduate performance but not much appeared to happen before he was shuffled out of the portfolio and Minister Tehan appears engrossed in schools funding.
