The Educator examines how an increased focus on mentoring is enhancing teachers’ professional development – and student outcomes.
More than 1,000 of the state’s best teachers are now able to mentor and coach other teachers in a major push to improve professional practice and student outcomes.
A state government imposed ban on international students is being considered for several schools to cope with rising enrolments.
Police are being deployed to the school to engage with students, not to punish them, says NSW Education Minister, Adrian Piccoli.
Adrian Piccoli has urged the nation’s leaders to support the Gonski funding model, which he says “works better than anything we've ever had in place in Australia."
NSW Education Minister, Adrian Piccoli, will today pledge $50m over the next four years for new classrooms and facilities in non-government schools.
