Clare: Teacher education ‘screaming out for reform’

A question now about the cost of degrees.

Clare:

What came out really clearly out of the conversation today and I got a better insight into it than I had before I went into the room, the initial teaching education is screaming out for reform. We need some reform here.

Clare said he would like Mark Scott, Sydney University vice-chancellor to head an expert panel that will look at what reforms are needed. However Clare says the terms of reference were not completed today and will be discussed collaboratively.

One of the things that Mark said to us, the way that unis work with hospitals for medical students is very different to the way that unis work with schools and education departments for teachers. And there may be some lessons for us there, where we can get better practical outcomes.

Clare also said he wanted to see government funding for universities prioritised for institutions that ensure student completion.

What I said on [Patricia Karvelas’ morning show on Radio National] this morning is 50% of young people who go into a teaching degree finish it. On average it’s about 70% of people who go into any other degree finish it. What is going wrong there? If there’s things that we do, whether it’s prac early on, so we get a real sense of what being a teacher is, if there’s other changes that we can make so, let’s say, 60% of people finish a teaching degree, we’ll go a long way to improving the situation.

Here are the latest coronavirus numbers from around Australia today, as the country records at least 86 deaths from Covid-19:

In April last year, the federal court of Australia found Google breached consumer laws by misleading some local users into thinking the company was not collecting personal data about their location via mobile devices with Android operating systems.

If you are involved in this behaviour you should leave immediately. There are processes in place.

n

What is important and what comes through the recommendations is the implementation of processes so that people can come forward in an anonymous way and raise these issues.

n

That is fundamentally the problem here – that there has been no mechanism set up for a proper complaints process. This report, this report is here today because people felt confident that they could come forward in the privacy and raise those issues in a confidential way. But for that we would not know, and you need people to have that environment created for them where they feel comfortable coming forward. That has clearly not occurred in the past.

I last night received a copy of this report. I have read the report. It is sobering, confronting and unacceptable. Every workplace across our state should be free from harassment, sexual harassment and sexual assault but this is not the case in the New South Wales parliament. Parliamentarians are leaders and role models in our society. They should lead from the front. Clearly, we have a culture in the New South Wales parliament that over time has become in many instances toxic and is wrong. If parliamentarians cannot lead and provide an environment where workplace is safe, what hope to be have for other workplaces across our great state?

National Covid summary

Here are the latest coronavirus numbers from around Australia today, as the country records at least 86 deaths from Covid-19:

ACT

NSW

Northern Territory

Queensland

South Australia

Tasmania

Victoria

Western Australia

The Greens have responded to the Broderick report released today, arguing it shows a “toxic boys club” extends beyond Canberra’s politics.

The review of New South Wales parliament found systemic bullying and widespread sexual harassment, with around half of incident perpetrated by MPs.

NSW Senator Mehreen Faruqi, member of the Joint Select Committee on Parliamentary Standards said the report was “traumatic and devastating”, but not surprising.

The sexist and racist underbelly of parliamentary work has been exposed again and again, and needs to end. Bullying and harassment cannot just be accepted as part of our political culture. It has to be eradicated at all levels.

As a member of the Joint Select Committee on Parliamentary Standards, which is looking at enforceable codes of conduct for parliamentary workplaces, I’m committed to making sure that the highest standards are set and followed. It’s beyond time to get this done, and to implement all the recommendations of the Jenkins report.

As leaders, it is our responsibility to set the best example for others to follow. That means a safe and respectful workplace free from bullying, harassment, sexual assault, sexism and racism.

A wayward kangaroo has attempted to break into the Russian embassy in Canberra, which some social media users have read as a barometer of sentiment among the local marsupial population over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Russian embassy confirmed the break in attempt in a post to its social media account which described it as an “unauthorised access attempt.”

Today, the video surveillance system of the Russian Embassy in Australia detected an unauthorised access attempt. No harm done.

It’s not the first time the social media presence of Russian embassy’s have often attracted attention for a “troll diplomacy” that needles local authorities on social media with a dry humour and political sarcasm.

In one example, the Russian embassy in the UK attempted to defend against allegations over the poisoning of Sergei Skripal using James Bond jokes about Russian spies and gags about cold weather and frosty diplomatic relations.

In another example, UK Russian embassy social media bragged that at least 99.8% of its followers were genuine after a Twitter purge of fake and “bot” accounts.

For more examples of the Russian diplomatic corps’ use of social media and its “troll diplomacy”, read this story by Guardian senior social reporter in London Martin Belam.

Western Australia records five new Covid deaths

Five people with Covid-19 have died in Western Australia overnight, with the state recording 2,327 new cases on Friday morning, 308 people in hospital, and 11 in ICU.

To deal with the crisis Gavrielatos says any national plan will have to “address the foundations” – ensuring a competitive salary for the teaching profession as a whole and dealing with the “crippling work loads that are accelerating the exodus of teachers”.

Gavrielatos said “we’re heading in a perfect storm” as completion rates in university programs have fallen and there has been a “dramatic” exodus of teachers.

This requires a reset. A reset to make the profession more attractive
quickly. Labour market economics dictates, this can’t be avoided by ministers, labour market economics dictates one of the key indicators of success in retaining and attracting people is pay and conditions and both of those are totally inadequate at the moment.

He also said one solution would be to resurrect a program for the 70s where scholarships were offered to prospective teaching students, university fees were waived and stipends paid to attract people to the profession.

Angelo Gavrielatos president of the New South Wales Teachers Federation is now speaking to the ABC giving his reaction to the ministers’ press conference. He is saying Jason Clare gets “full marks” for calling the meeting, “remembering he has inherited 10 years of neglect and policies that have contributed to this crisis in which we find ourselves.”

He’s got the responsibility of trying to coordinate a national response to deal with it. We can’t let them off the hook – or those who have similarly presided over the crisis.

I certainly support the suggestion and the notion of the development of a national plan, a national plan to identify what those particular policy areas are that could contribute to addressing this matter in the medium term and longer term.

However, we’ve got a crisis today. We’ve got a crisis today which sees thousands and thousands of kids missing out on their learning because of the teacher shortage. And that teacher shortage will continue to grow into the future, certainly over the next number of years.

Clare: Teacher education ‘screaming out for reform’

A question now about the cost of degrees.

Clare:

What came out really clearly out of the conversation today and I got a better insight into it than I had before I went into the room, the initial teaching education is screaming out for reform. We need some reform here.

Clare said he would like Mark Scott, Sydney University vice-chancellor to head an expert panel that will look at what reforms are needed. However Clare says the terms of reference were not completed today and will be discussed collaboratively.

One of the things that Mark said to us, the way that unis work with hospitals for medical students is very different to the way that unis work with schools and education departments for teachers. And there may be some lessons for us there, where we can get better practical outcomes.

Clare also said he wanted to see government funding for universities prioritised for institutions that ensure student completion.

What I said on [Patricia Karvelas’ morning show on Radio National] this morning is 50% of young people who go into a teaching degree finish it. On average it’s about 70% of people who go into any other degree finish it. What is going wrong there? If there’s things that we do, whether it’s prac early on, so we get a real sense of what being a teacher is, if there’s other changes that we can make so, let’s say, 60% of people finish a teaching degree, we’ll go a long way to improving the situation.

On skilled-work visas, Clare says visas for teachers from overseas should be prioritised.

One of the things we’ve got to do is prioritise visas for teachers from overseas who want to come and work here. States independently of the commonwealth work with teachers who are keen to work here. Make sure they meet the standards that individual states have, to be accredited and registered to teach here, and then when they want to come here, make sure they get the visa as quickly as possible.

NSW education minister Sarah Mitchell says that she would like to see this scheme go further and include a fast-track program for citizenship for teachers that would like to move to Australia.

Questions beginning now, with federal education minister Jason Clare saying that a proposition he favours is one involving a paid internship model that “will be part of the action-plan we’ll ask secretaries to work up for us”.

When I talk about mentoring, I am talking about something slightly different to a master-teacher model. When a teacher first arrives at school, fresh off university, they need a mentor. They need a proper induction process. They need some hands-on experience about behaviour management. In different jurisdictions and states it’s done differently. The review said let’s have some national guidelines for that.

South Australia records 12 new Covid deaths

Twelve people with Covid-19 have died in South Australia overnight, with the state recording 1,482 new cases on Friday morning, 256 people in hospital, and 10 in ICU.

State education ministers are now taking turns to speak.

Sarah Mitchell from New South Wales, who says she’s looking forward to working on a national plan.

Ignazia Grace from Queensland says that she is looking forward to “working collaboratively and cooperatively” across jurisdictions and says the meeting “is a breath of fresh air”.

Natalie Hutchins from Victoria says she wants the country’s teachers to know “we’ve heard you and we see you and we thank you for all you’ve done”. She says Covid has been hard on teachers, particularly as they grapple with medical and health concerns.

Sue Ellery from Western Australia wishes to “echo” the comments of her counterpart Ignazia Grace that “today was a breath of fresh air” and says today’s meeting was dominated by two messages: that 2022 has been hard and that educators are under pressure.

Blair Boyer from South Australia says it is important to hear directly from those whose profession they represent.

Roger Jaensch from Tasmania says the problems identified are the same in “every jurisdiction” and that they are “national challenges that need a national solution”. He says that “we can do better than stealing each other’s teachers. We can steal each other’s ideas, share each other’s information and come out with real solutions”.

Yvette Berry from ACT says she wants to thank federal minister Clare for the comments today “reassuring teachers that he has their backs because that’s something that they haven’t heard for a number of years.” She adds that teachers “have felt undermined and undervalued for some time now”.

Eva Lawler from the Northern Territory says the workload of teachers has been increasing “whether it’s dragging a kangaroo off an oval in the Northern Territory or dealing with the complexities of teachers facing mental health issues”.
