Everyone has memories of their teachers - some good, some not. Education is one of our most universal experiences. In Australia almost all the population attends school for at least 10 years and 80 per cent for 12 years or more. Teachers are often the first significant adults in our lives outside the home. How important are they in our lives? Do they have lasting effects? In Opening Doors to the Future Phillip Hughes recounts the experiences of a number of well-known Australians with their teachers. Contributors include: John Abernethy, Peter Andrews, Paul Brock, Lyndsay Connors, General Peter Cosgrove, AC, MC, Fabian Dattner, Stephen Downes, Phillip Hughes, Dennis Lillee, John Marsden, Carmel Niland, Claire Smith, Dr Charlie Teo Mark Wahlqvist, Roderick West, Dr Fiona Wood, Richard Woolcott, Rusty Young.
