Is education gonski?

The hot debate for the week is without doubt the federal government’s response to the most recent review of our education funding – the Gonski Review.

Pick up any newspaper around the country and you’ll find something about Gonski.

And you guessed it, Gonski is going to be on The Agenda, broadcasting live from 5:30pm AEST.

Since this is Rant n Rave Radio, we want to know what you think about the Gonski Review and the federal government’s response.

Is multiculturalism destroying Australia’s social cohesion?

One of the many issues confronting contemporary Australia is the issue of multiculturalism. It’s also an issue that will be covered in next week’s The Agenda.

For the team at Rant n Rave Radio it’s a no-brainer – we support multiculturalism. It’s something we think has made a profoundly beneficial impact on Australia as a country.

It’s not just about the food but the different customs and ways of viewing the world.

However we also know many people including some of our listeners think multiculturalism is destructive. Many believe that there has been too much interference in Australia’s way of life and culture from foreign influences. And many believe multiculturalism is destroying Australia’s social cohesion.

We might disagree but tell us what you think about multiculturalism.

We love a good debate but keep it clean.

No Show This Week So Debate Theatre Instead

Alas dear listeners Greg and Alex won’t be broadcasting a show this week.

We know you’ll be disappointed to hear that but we’re keen to hear your thoughts about Theatre as it’s an issue the team will take up next week. Without doubt our next show is going to be a big show about Theatre as Greg returns from a stint at the Opera House with Coranderrk: We will show the country.

So make sure you get your thoughts in about Theatre. We want to know what you like, what you don’t like, why and where you see Theatre, your favourite or most loathed performances. Join in.

You never know we might pick up on some of the debate here in next week’s show.

Open Thread on Australian Theatre

Greg and Alex spend a great deal of time ranting n raving about Australian theatre compared to theatre from different parts of the world; it’s historical development and the state that it’s in Australia today. Sometimes we’ve shared our thoughts with our listeners and the response has generally been surprising.

With so much focusing on sport, celebrities and ‘reality’ TV shows we decided to begin this open thread about Australian theatre, or theatre in your neck of the woods. Tell us how you’d compare theatre with different parts of the world or your county, the development of theatre in your country and your take on the state of theatre in your country today.

Join the debate and share your thoughts.
