Parents and teachers around Australia want the “origins” of Australia’s liberal democracy taught in classrooms, according to Education Minister Alan Tudge.

“They want to ensure that standards are high; that the origins of our liberal democracy are taught fully in the classrooms so that the next generation will defend our democracy in a similar manner to what previous generations have,” Mr Tudge said.

“It seems that the only people who don’t share this view, of wanting to have a positive view of Australia, wanting kids to have high standards, wanting kids to understand the origins of our liberal democracy, is those opposite – who suggest that concept is weird.”
