Kevin Donnelly has frequently railed against the dangers of political correctness. This work commendably highlights its stultifying effect on plain speaking. -- John Howard – Australian Prime Minister.
Political correctness is the antithesis of education. Education is about opening the mind and encouraging thought and that will sometimes include ideas which might be characterised as dangerous. Notions of political correctness are about corralling thought and banishing ideas which don’t fit prevailing prejudices and ideologies. Political correctness has no place in beneficial education. -- Alan Jones – Radio and TV commentator and journalist.
Kevin Donnelly precisely and chillingly depicts what is happening to language and thought under PC regulation and the dangerous history behind it. Read his arguments and be galvanised. -- Shelley Gare – Commentator and journalist.
Dr Kevin Donnelly is one of the best friends two generations of young Australians have had. He is a tireless advocate for educational quality and understands what makes a difference. His insights and experience make this book another winner. -- Tess Livingstone – Journalist at The Australian and author.
Kevin Donnelly is the best thinker and writer in Australia on issues of children’s education and how political correctness is enforcing group think and destroying the language. He has, in the 25 years since I first published his work, been rigorous in outing the effects of faddish left wing approaches to teacher training and educational theory that have so damaged our school system. -- Chris Mitchell – Past editor of The Australian and journalist.
