Budget 2016 brings temporary solutions for schools, and puts more demands on students and teachers

Stewart Riddle writes in The Conversation (4.5.16) about the federal budget’s impact upon the nation’s schools and education systems. He claims that some of the details of budget announcements will put school funding under further pressure.

‘While the 2016 budget looks pretty harmless for schools, the announcements about testing, standardisation and linking teachers’ pay to performance could prove problematic. Some of the policies proposed do not match what the research says.

‘… there is no doubt that school funding and education will be one of the key battlegrounds in the upcoming election.’
