 Freed Burmese Opposition1 leader Aung San Suu Kyi has offered an olive branch to the country’s military junta2.

She says she also wants to speak to western leaders about reducing sanctions that have been applied3 to Burma.

That report by the Grattan Institute says increasing teachers’ effectiveness by just 10 per cent would make Australia’s education system one of the best in the world. It says it would also improve productivity, potentially lifting economic growth by $19 million by 2050.

It also questions the structure of the National Broadband Network, saying it could stifle4 competition. But the report does support pricing carbon as soon as possible. 
 
The Greens’ chances of winning Lower House seats in this month’s Victorian state election have been dealt a serious blow. The Liberals have decided5 to direct preferences to Labor6 instead, significantly improving the LP’s chances of hanging on to some vulnerable inner-city seats.
 
And Somali pirates have freed a retired7 British couple who’ve been held hostage for more than a year. Paul and Rachel Chandler were kidnapped after their yacht was hijacked8 by pirates off the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean in October last year.
