Government has finally published its draft education plan and a number of key elements have been revealed, such as plans for the launch of free internet access and the removal of the age requirement.
Key points:The Government has released its draft curriculum and curriculum standards for 2018-19Education Minister Michaelia Cash has been tasked with implementing the new plansIncluding the national curriculum, the Government will be offering free internet for schoolchildren and online education for children aged 6-12The Government is proposing a national curriculum for all schools, which includes more detailed information on school funding and timetables, and is expected to make a major announcement later in the year, with the timetable expected to be released in early 2020.
The new national curriculum is expected in the spring of 2020, with further details expected to come later.
The national curriculum will be released on December 11, 2020, while the local school curriculum will also be released by the end of the year.
The National Plan for Schools will provide an overview of the changes, including what changes to school funding will mean for schools, how the national and local curricula will be integrated, and how parents can help shape the curriculum.
The Government will also include a new “favourite school” scheme, which will allow parents to nominate a school for their child to attend.
The scheme will give parents the chance to make their child more likely to attend a local school, with a greater number of parents in each school, for the greater of two school grades.
Parents can also nominate their child’s favourite school for free, with more than 30,000 parents already signing up for the scheme.
The plan also includes a new scheme to reward schools that achieve a “high score” in the local curriculum, with up to a £1,000 reward for each “high” score achieved.
“There is a huge demand for free online learning, and this national curriculum puts the Government on the right track to deliver the kind of digital learning we all need,” Minister Cash said.
“We’re making it easier for parents to have more choice about their children’s education and better supports for them to access the opportunities and benefits of digital education.”‘
A new day in the life of a young Australian’While it will be a while before the national program is fully implemented, the new curriculum is being released in a bid to make it easier to understand what the new program means for school and community.
“The new National Plan will be in place over the next two years, and we want to ensure we can deliver it to the Australian people as soon as possible,” Minister Michaelio told FourFour Two.
“Schools and communities across Australia will be better equipped to support students, teachers, administrators and teachers, to create a stronger and more successful education system.”‘
We need to make sure it’s really, really good’The national program will also give schools more information on how to prepare their pupils for their chosen subject, and will provide a “best practice” for teaching online.
“With the new National Framework, schools and communities will be able to make the most of the resources they have to help their students learn, and the National Plan is a way to make that happen,” Ms Cash said, adding that she hoped that all Australians would take advantage of the National Framework and learn how to best use the National Program to help them better prepare their children for the future.
The Minister also promised that she would work closely with the community to ensure that the national plan is implemented, and that there were no issues with implementing it at all.
“I will be meeting with communities and families across Australia to ensure the new national program delivers on its promises,” she said.
