Insights into the world of school marketing and communications, presented by Brad Entwistle and Andrew Sculthorpe.
In this special episode, Brad speaks with Professor Luke Connolly from The University of Queensland about media reports concerning a study by university researchers who reportedly declared that investing in a private education is a waste of money.
Diving deeper, Brad also interviews Ron Gorman, Deputy Director of the Association of Independent Schools Western Australia (AISWA), discussing the media sensationalism surrounding the research, how the research questions the value of non-government education, NAPLAN tests used as data in the study and issues with the conclusions drawn in the study.
