In a new online series leading up to the state election, The Examiner Online will be hosting a series of forums designed to give voters an insight into some of the hot topics of the campaign.
The Head-To-Head series will pit two politicians from our leading parties against each other across a range of issues.
Today's first Head-To-Head live chat will feature Education Minister Brian Wightman up against Liberal education spokesman Michael Ferguson.
Over the coming weeks, we will feature a range of other politicians and candidates from all the three major parties, focussing on other issues such as policing, law and order and forestry.
Today's live discussion is open to the public and we will be taking questions from the audience - all live from 1pm .
