Queensland curriculum program to change after report highlights workload issues

The ABC’s Nick Wiggins reports (26.7.16) on the release by the Education Minister, Kate Jones, of a Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority report into the state’s P-10 curriculum, and the government’s acceptance of its main findings regarding a ‘crowded’ syllabus.

‘Teachers in Queensland will be given more flexibility over how they teach the curriculum, the Education Minister has announced.

‘Kate Jones said teachers had told her they wanted changes to her department’s Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) resources, saying there was too much for them to get through.

‘… A report by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) into the Prep to Year 10 curriculum was released today.

‘The report found that “the volume of curriculum content has resulted in a range of workload issues for teachers”. It recommended a core curriculum be developed for Prep to Year 10.’
