Quality Education for All

Part of the Education in the Asia-Pacific Region: Issues, Concerns and Prospects book series (EDAP, volume 20)


I was born in Hobart in 1947. When I did my Diploma of Education in 1968 at the University of Tasmania, Charles Hardy was professor of education, and Phil Hughes was my lecturer for the statistics section of the course. At the same time, Phil was deputy director general in the education department. It was in the latter part of the 1980s that I came into frequent professional contact with Phil when he was professor of education at the University of Tasmania, and I was private secretary to the Minister for Education. I left Tasmania in early 1990 to become director of an international bilingual (English/French) IB (see below) school in France at Sophia Antipolis, Europe’s largest technology park between Nice and Cannes.
