Lunching the way to a brighter teaching profession

Improving the professional status of teachers is a key issue in education. To this end, the Australian Council of Deans of Education are organising a forum and inviting education organisations to work collaboratively on the issue.

Well thank goodness for that!

There will be talks from politicians, journalists and even a session in which “Teacher education students, teachers and prospective students” will be allowed to speak.

Hoorah!

The whole thing will be moderated by some former journalist and is hosted at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.

What a great venue!

But there’s a catch. It takes place on a Friday in term time, so most teachers will not be able to attend. Oh, and it costs $450.

Never mind, perhaps they can fix the status of the teaching profession without us.

  1. The ACDE is trying to cover their huge mistake in not calling for raising standards in ITE entry. That’s the very first thing that will start to restore public faith in Teachers.
    Students and teachers attending on a Friday! Only if it’s free. Why not live stream on FB and allow for genuine public participation.
