Fair and balanced

Just about all reporting of Andrew Norton and Ittima Cherastidtham’s last Grattan Institute report (CMM yesterday) went first with the authors’ conclusion that some young men with low ATARs have better employment outcomes with a VET qualification than university degrees.

Invariably, reports then added that most young women with lower school leaving scores did better with a degree (think teaching and nursing).

It was all fair enough but with the political pendulum swinging strong to training guess which bit will quoted in parliament.
