Shadow Minister for Education, Nick Wakeling
We now have evidence internationally and nationally, that our education standards are going backwards or have flatlined.
The results show that despite significant increase in education funding, results in science, maths and English are failing to improve.
Throwing money at schools without any regard for student literacy and numeracy outcomes shows a disregard for the future of our children.
Daniel Andrews should be embarrassed for celebrating these results.
The message is clear for Daniel Andrews, stop funding politically ideological programs like Safe Schools and start focusing on the basics such as numeracy and literacy.
Victorian children won’t get better jobs if their education doesn’t include better literacy and numeracy skills.
It’s clear we need to make some very big changes to what our kids are taught.
