The path to improved standards in education must begin with greater support for principals, says Susan Lenehan, chair of Principals Australia Institute (PAI).

    Parents can help take some pressure of teachers with assisting their children at home with spelling and homework.
    Please visit my web site at, to view my App.
    The most effective, speak to text, spelling education App on the market. The cost is only $3.79, and profanity is filtered out, there is No in app purchases, No ads or extra cost’s associated with the app.
    Please take note of the Dyslexic option, in the settings area. Just choose the font and background type, from the various colour backgrounds provided. Then see which one works better, for the child/student.
    The app also supports 20 languages, for converting from a particular word spoken in the language chosen, to the correct spelling in that chosen language, again from the settings. This can assist students, who may doing an alternative language coarse.
    Our aim is to introduce the app to all English speaking countries, and to have families, with a device, have the Easy Spelling Aid, App.
    My App is supported by most of the Australian state EDU departments, and is on the Victorian, iPads for education website.
    Western Australian Education Consultants stated, they consider it to be innovative and simple to use. A 21st century learning tool with obvious benefits to students. Choice of font, sensitivity to voice, range of vocabulary and speed of response are strengths.
    Our aim is to seek parents understanding and awareness, of their children’s possible need for assistance at home, as well as at school. And that help is available, at a low cost.

    Ian Dowsett.
