This book warns of a future where the hardest schools for Australian parents to get their kids into will be public ones. With insight, passion and a great sense of urgency Chris Bonnor and Jane Caro show how government, anxious parents, the church and ideology are combining to undermine public schools. The Stupid Country is not a one-sided defence of public education. But it challenges us to consider whether we really want to continue stumbling blindly down our current path, risking the health of our public schools and everything they have created - our prosperity, unity, stability -even, perhaps, our democracy.
