Senate Education and Employment References Committee Inquiry; ‘The Issue of Increasing Disruption in Australian School Classrooms’
There is clear evidence that the transformative power of education cannot be underestimated. We owe the next, and subsequent generations the very best education we can offer. This education must be based on the most recent research evidence, sufficient resourcing, and support from the community. In addition, mechanisms and environments used to educate children and young people must not create excessive stress for those who teach. Concurrently the Rights of the Child as defined by the United Nations1 must be upheld. This Submission has been prepared by a diverse team of education experts with extensive experience working in schools, teaching pre-service teachers and collaborating with schools in world-breaking research. We provide evidence and expert informed knowledge to respond to the Inquiry Terms of Reference. In addition, we conceptualise the major issues as noted in the latest research evidence and the most effective approaches to addressing the pressing needs facing education in Australia today.
