Breaking: Aussies in revolt over music school cuts, head man suspended
The decision by the Australian National University to sack all of its music teachers is reaping a whirlwind of backlash.
Last night the state Legislative Assembly voted unanimously to condemn ANU’s action. Students have set up a protest website and collected 11,000 signatures protesting the decision. And, just in, the head of ANU School of Music, Prof Adrian Walter, has been instructed ‘to take leave forthwith and to consider his options very carefully’.
In Australia when something needs to get done, they don’t just sit around yakking about it.
