Enjoy a superb lunch while listening to former Labor Party MP and revered journalist, Maxine McKew, speak about inequality in the Australian education system and her ideas on how to bridge the divide.

This not-to-be-missed literary lunch is part of the Reality Bites non-fiction literary festival and hosted by the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network.It’s sponsored by the University of the Sunshine Coast’sFaculty of Arts and Business.

Maxine will be talking about the findings in her book: Class Act – Ending the Education Wars.

Class Act is a series of conversations with some of the most prominent thinkers in education and an examination of culture and political change in six Australian schools.  It addresses a pressing national dilemma: How to replicate success across a fragmented education system and reverse the decline in student performance?

Don’t miss this opportunity to listen to one of Australia’s leading intellectuals and favourite media personalities.

Many will be familiar with the Logie and Walkley award-winning journalist in her roles as anchor on ABC TV’s Lateline and 7.30 Report programs. After switching broadcasting politics, Maxine wrote herself into Australian history books by defeating Prime Minister John Howard in the Sydney seat of Bennelong in the 2007 Federal election.
