Dr Karl will donate IGR money to needy schools

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki has announced he will donate money received from being the face of the Government's Intergenerational Report to needy schools.

The science commentator, who is the face of the Government's 40-year outlook document, on Wednesday backed away from the report, calling it "flawed".
