Julia Gillard may have been hoping for a debate on education when she logged in for a Facebook live chat this afternoon -- instead, she got sexist taunts and was told to "get my dinner ready".

In the one-hour live Q and A chat, the Prime Minister responded to 13 users’ questions about education, discussing the Gonski report and the national curriculum. She responded to users' comments about their favourite teachers, and answered questions about school resources, curricula and her promise to make Australian education in the top five countries by 2025.
