Think-tanks of various political persuasions, both in Australia and overseas, play a vital role in the battle of ideas and the development and evaluation of public policy.
Given recent events such as Kevin Rudd's education revolution, it is a good time to establish a conservative, independently minded think-tank. The reality is that the majority of Australian think-tanks are left-of-centre in their outlook and education in Australia suffers from provider capture.
In order to provide balance, as well as an alternative viewpoint, it is important that a diversity of voices contribute to the public debate and the development of policy.
ESI welcomes support from those individuals and organisations committed to an education system based on standards, equity, diversity and choice.
