 After four years as Minister for Education, Science and Training, I now have the responsibility of focusing on Defence. These days my office walls are covered with photos of service men and women and souvenirs from visits to battlefields and bases. But the largest portrait in my Canberra office is still of someone
I have the highest admiration for and who continues to remind me of what is really important – the late Neville Bonner. Born and raised in extreme poverty, Neville Bonner said the
turning point in his life was the advice he received at age 14 from his grandmother, who told him that if he learned to read and write, communicate well and treat other people with decency and courtesy, that it would take him a long way. Neville Bonner went on to become the first Indigenous member
of the Federal Parliament, from where he not only served his country, but helped break down barriers within it. If information is the currency of democracy, how can Australians participate unless they are able to read and write? In December 2005, I launched the findings of the National
Inquiry into the Teaching of Literacy. As mentioned in this inquiry, around 8% of Year 3 students and around 11% of Year 5 students are not achieving the minimum National Benchmarks for Reading. It noted the obvious correlation between poor literacy and
under-achievement, and consequent adverse affects on individuals and society, including problems with self-esteem, mental health, substance abuse and crime.
