What did you learn today? : creating an education revolution by Mark Latham( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If Australians are so smart why are we losing the international education race? More important, what should the community do about this? What can teachers, parents, and students do about this? And does it matter anyway?" "Mark Latham answers these questions and more. He explains how nothing matters more to our future than the education of our people. He shows why education has become our best economic policy as well as our best social program. He argues that the debate about education needs to move past the barren struggle between markets and states, between 'progressives' and 'traditionalists'. He shows us how we can seize the opportunities around us to become a learning society. And spread the benefits of education to every section of the community."--Jacket

Not dead yet : what future for Labor? by Mark Latham( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition of the acclaimed essay Not Dead Yet is significantly expanded by Mark Latham to take into account the election result. It also includes substantial contributions from several key progressive thinkers on Labor's future direction. Latham astutely reveals an organisation top-heavy with factional bosses protecting their turf. At the same time Labor's traditional working-class base has long been eroding. People who grew up in fibro shacks now live in double- storey affluence. Families once resigned to a lifetime of blue-collar work now expect their children to be well-educated professionals and entrepreneurs. Latham explains how Labor has always succeeded as a grassroots party, and argues for reforms to clear out the apparatchiks and dead wood. Then there are the key policy challenges: what to do about the Keating economic legacy, education, climate change and poverty

On Labor and the left by Mark Latham( Recording )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'During the term of the Rudd and Gillard governments, criticism of the Labor Party became a national pastime.' So writes Mark Latham, a one-time leader of the party and still its most perceptive, and fiercest, critic. In Quarterly Essay 49, Latham argues that the time has come to go beyond criticism to solutions. In that spirit, he offers a timely assessment of the future for Labor. He examines the key challenges: the union nexus, the Keating settlement, a real education revolution, a new war on poverty, climate change, and handling the Greens. With wit and insight, he suggests that Labor's biggest problem is the steady erosion of its traditional working-class base. Can Labor reinvent itself and speak to a changed Australia?

Latham at large by Mark Latham( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Latham is, by his own admission, the most outspoken, rebellious, thoroughly uncontrollable former leader in Labor Party history. In these brilliantly written opinion pieces he pulls no punches as he scrutinises the Australian political landscape, looking at everything from climate change to Clive Palmer, to what went wrong with Rudd/Gillard and what's now wrong with Abbott. Beyond politics, he dabbles in his other great interests, such as critiquing the modern media and explaining his fascination with horse racing. His hilarious 'Henderson Watch' columns and other satirical writing also feature in this volume. Latham has a formidable intellect and a forensic ability to get to the bottom of things. This is an entertaining, thought-provoking, sometimes scathing, often humorous collection from a man who is not afraid to speak his mind. There is no one else like him in Australian public life
