Craig Greer writes in the latest South Australian Teachers Journal about the lack of special needs funding. ‘It’s an issue that is becoming more critical by the day and, if not addressed with the rollout of needs based funding as recommended by the Gonski Review, has the capacity to severely impact on outcomes in public schools for years to come.’

John Kruger continues chronicling his son Stone’s life, from birth to young boy, in the SA Kids magazine. In this issue he writes about bedtime reading and how he is not as keen as Stone on Dr Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham.

The South Australian courts have released a comic book to celebrate 20 years of restorative justice for young offenders; read more  here. The comic, written by Marnie Doig and drawn by me, was actually created 20 years ago, at the beginning of the family conference based system.

The role that philanthropists play, in partnership with the not-for-profit sector, is highlighted in a number of posts on the Pro Bono News website.  In particular, a call to young Aussie philanthropists from the Founder and CEO of San Francisco-based Tipping Point Community, Daniel Lurie.

As Philanthropy Australia’s New Generation of Giving Manager, Caroline Vu says: “This generation of young philanthropists isn’t content just writing cheques. They want to be engaged in the giving process, using their skills, resources and networks to maximise return on investment.”
