Land of education opportunity, India isn’t entirely

The prime minister has responded to the Varghese report on economic links with India, just not the prime minister that commissioned it. Malcolm Turnbull asked Peter Varghese to write the strategy in 2017 and now Scott Morrison supports in-principle its 20 priority recommendations.

There isn’t a lot for education and training in the Varghese report, which was frank about what is possible in India ( CMM July 13) and it showed in the government’s head-line response yesterday. There was no mention of expanding study links and the research programme mentioned is grants up to $500 000 to “solve challenges faced by both nations.”
