Despite substantial change to Australian education, there has been little improvement. But these two experts say there is an answer

    Substantial change in education is one thing, however, the current school design features such as one teacher of one subject for one year level in one classroom need to be re-examined. The Grattan Report's research on the variation of students skills and knowledge in one year level class should be a signal that this design feature should be challenged. If we keep on structuring our schools this way then many students will be left behind. Schools can organise classes with several year levels and more than one teacher using an interdisciplinary approach to learning design.
