The Honorable Julia Gillard
From my own family background the difference an education makes, a good education makes, is really clear to me.
My parents were always wistful about what they could have become if they got to finish school and go on to university and really because I had that opportunity my life has been very different to theirs.
The Honorable Michael Kirby
Education is everybody’s birthright and we Australians have to contribute generously to make sure that is a promise of the universal declaration of Human Rights that is actually delivered.
