Male teachers drift, ipods trialled, Tasmania regresses


Educational themes led the coverage around the nation this week. In Adelaide, male teachers are shifting to independent schools, in Victoria ipods and ipads are being trialled in Year 7, and in Qld an investigation into a gay talk in a school hall has been ruled out. Human rights also made news: the government's planned detention centre in Tasmania will see it revert to the convict era, says Bishop Christopher Saunders (pictured).
