PM Howard accused of bullying on history (Australia)





THE states are continuing to claim the Howard Government is bullying them into reinstating traditional history teaching in schools, despite having been officially invited to contribute to last week's history summit in Canberra.

The Australian has learned that federal Education Minister Julie Bishop wrote to all states and territories last month to seek their input to the summit.

''I am very willing to work with the states and territories ... to further strengthen the place of history in the Australian classroom,'' Ms Bishop said in her letter.
