Posted June 13, 2020 12:01:06 The Australian Government has promised that it will ensure every student receives full range of skill training from the start of the 2020-61 school year.
Education Minister John Elferink made the announcement during the opening of the national curriculum on Tuesday.
He said the Government was “working to deliver on its promise to deliver a high quality education” to all students by the end of 2020.
“We are committed to ensuring that every student has the opportunities they need in the classroom and beyond,” Mr Elferik said.
A national curriculum would be implemented starting with primary schools and secondary schools by 2020-20, with secondary schools to follow by 2021-22.
The Government’s education spokeswoman, Marise Payne, said it was a priority to provide students with a wide range of educational opportunities.
Ms Payne said the government was working to ensure every Australian child would have access to all the skills they need to succeed.
‘Greatly expanded’ The National Assessment Framework for Australian Education (NAFTA) was introduced in the 2015-16 financial year, and includes a number of key policies, including the introduction of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in 2020, and a national student assessment in 2021-23.
In May, the Federal Government introduced the National School Assessment Framework, which will be rolled out in 2021.
It includes a new school assessment, including a focus on “the quality of learning outcomes” and a new emphasis on student readiness.
NAFTE’s introduction has been controversial with some calling it “dismantling” of state school curricula.
