For more than a decade, Aus­tralia’s ed­u­ca­tion per­for­mance has been de­clin­ing on the world stage. As a na­tion, we pride our­selves on our sport­ing ex­cel­lence while aca­demic achieve­ments are of­ten over­looked.

It also gives a unique in­sight into the joys and chal­lenges of parenting a gifted child.
