Education

Australian Progressives recognise education as the greatest opportunity for every child in Australia to get the best start in life.

To this end, Australian Progressives will:

  1. Improve teacher training and remuneration in a similar way to the successful Finnish model.
  2. Review the national curriculum in order to bring best practice education, with a particular focus on changing one-size-fits-all paradigms, instead encouraging each child’s agency and interests, supporting a thirst for knowledge and the teaching of research, mindfulness, and sound argument.
  3. Remove excessive testing and inappropriate pushing down of the curriculum and homework into early childhood.
