Why Christopher Pyne has failed to sell his tertiary education reforms

Jamie Miller writes in the Conversation (18.814) about Christopher Pyne’s failure to sell his tertiary education reforms:  ‘The long, sorry saga serves as an ideal case study of how not to go about building support for a controversial reform program.  The first problem was that of consultation.  When the reforms were announced in the May budget, the government caught all of the key stakeholders off-guard.  The lack of prior consultation meant the government struggled from the outset to avoid the perception that its new policy simply reflected a pre-ordained template to turn the sector into a market.’
