This man influencing our kids' curriculum?
His goal for our schools? He's been quoted to say, "greater emphasis on western Judeo-Christian culture". Oh – and using his extensive vocabularly as a poetry professor at the University of Sydney to insult and degrade as many Australians as possible.
Do you want our kids' schooling influenced by a man with such despicable world views? Sign the petition calling on Christopher Pyne to take immediate action to dismiss his role as advisor to Australia's education curriculum and on Sydney University to take immediate action to address Mr Spurr's inexcusable actions.

The game is up. Let's show we've had enough of our hand-picked curriculum consultants who espouse these hateful views.
SIGN THE PETITION
To Education Minister Christopher Pyne and The University of Sydney,
Anyone who perpetuates racist, sexist, bigoted and hateful attitudes is unfit to be in a position of leadership and to influence school curriculum for Australia's students.
We call on you to condemn Professor Barry Spurr's bigoted, reprehensible and hateful words.
We also call on the Vice-Chancellor at Sydney University to take immediate action to suspend his position while undertaking a review of his future as a Professor of Poetry at the University of Sydney.
