Ninemsn have this story here of plans by ANU to operate an elite schooling system for ACT public school kiddies in Science and Maths. They will gain access to ANU staff and resources. The Canberra Times has much of the same on their part of the web with Ian Chubb saying;
“We would like to blur the boundary between school and university, so we can encourage some of those young people to pursue science as a career, and in order to do so, to expose them, or at least the curriculum if not the individuals, to some of Australia’s best academic scientists”
Brilliant. Now all they need is City West to be built, so they can house the place.
