Sarah Henderson gets the hang of opposition

In her Universities Australia speech last week  the new coalition shadow minister for education had a go at the government over the Accord

It is, she said, “delayed action” claiming it will be two years minimum, before there is a plan.  “Labor had nine years to formulate a policy but I think it’s fair to say that they did not do a sufficient amount of work.”  Good-o, but  having a national plan to transform higher education in opposition is a bit of an ask.

Senator Henderson also criticised the government for not cancelling Confucius Centre agreements – which the coalition did not do in government, despite outrageathons over Cis in universities on its watch.
