John Fischetti writes in The Conversation (5.4.16) about proposals for reforming and improving the nation’s systems of teacher education.
‘There have been more than 100 reports critiquing teacher education in Australia since the 1970s. These reports led to new tests and more accountability standards and measures of teacher behaviours.
‘Today we have a regulated profession that has not changed the content of what is taught as much as developed a tick box compliance process. We need a major revamp of teacher education from the inside out that actually changes the model to provide all children with the education that is right for them.’
