Summary
David Gillespie has six kids. When it came time to select high schools, he thought he should investigate the level of advantage his kids would enjoy if he spent the required $1.3 million and sent them all to private schools. Shockingly, the answer was: none whatsoever. Intrigued, David continued his research. He discovered that class size doesn't matter, kids are better off in co-ed, composite classes are fine, fancy buildings are a waste of money, the old-tie network won't cut it in the new industries and NAPLAN is misread by everyone, so is largley meaningless as a measure of quality. Taking on an ingrained and historical system of vested interests, this book is controversial and absolutely necassary
