Craig Emerson, Bob McMullan and Lindsay Tanner today released a trio of "Progressive Essays". In their words, the essays are "designed to engender constructive debate about new policy directions". The three are by Craig Emerson (on what Labor stands for), Rodney Hall (on arts policy), and yours truly (on schools policy). I’ve posted them below, though regular readers of the blog will have seen an earlier draft of my schools paper.
And yes, Emerson and McMullan are still languishing on the backbench.
