Julia Gillard was once more promoting Teach for Australia in the media, this time on Lateline raising a concerning problem.
“They were literally having their doors beaten down by high-performing graduates who wanted to get on the program, and they had to turn people away.”
via Lateline – 11/11/2009: Gillard discusses education changes. (emphasis mine)
I must admit that in the visits I’ve made to the Teach for Australia offices I hadn’t noticed any damage to their doors: but I suppose it is the sort of thing you fix fairly quickly.
(I can’t stand the misuse of the word “literally” – maybe I should be shilling for an English class…. )
