She has published five books, including titles such as What makes a good school? and The Stupid Country: How Australia is Dismantling Public Education. Appearing regularly in the media, including spots on Weekend Sunrise, Sunrise, The Drum, QandA, The Project, and Today Jane is outspoken about many issues dear to her heart.
