Schools set to vote on education merger

Updated

While the state government is mulling whether to vote to merge schools and universities, one major concern is that the schools alone will be the driving force for that change.

The new Government is committed to putting schools into the new Australian state budget, and one of its first moves will be the merger of the NSW School of Education and the University of Technology.

“It’s always tough when a new department or department goes out and we get the old department running,” State School Minister Tony Shepherd said.

“There’s always pressure to do something quickly.

“We need to get through this. There are a lot of things to do in terms of reorganisation and the school system is going to come to the end of its life in the next 20 years.”

In 2015, when the state governmen예스카지노t unveiled its vision for schools, Mr Shepherd우리카지노 was among the speakers that spoke to the chamber and delivered his warning that many schools were in “serious debt” and couldn’t pay the bills.

He said he was the one that had been in touch with the school sector to ask them how many people were working in their schools, so when they were unable to fund more people it was the teachers who would have to bear the financial burden.

“I’ve spoken out. I’ve said what I’ve said,” Mr Shepherd said.

“We have a lot of very strong policies about the school system and we’ve got to get these things through the system.”

But his words still aren’t convincing many school leaders.

Peter Capper from Puntay High School said he wouldn’t join a school merger if it meant losing staff and services like his teaching assistant training course in Sydney.

“We need more young teachers. I will always support the idea of school mergers, but I don’t know about all of those others things.

“I don’t want to lose my teacher training course, because I think 더킹카지노our graduates are some of the best teachers in the country, but we also need our teachers to be trained as well.

“We want a modern, fast-moving profession, education and training. We’ve got to take care of that as well as our young people.”
