What now?

23 04 2010

Submissions are in (mostly – principals and others may have extensions). What to do now:

Attend the hearings.  They are open to the public.

  • Sydney: Parliament House, Waratah Room
    Wednesday 28 April 2010, 10:00am – 3:00pm
  • Melbourne: Parliament House, Legislative Council Committee Room
    Thursday 29 April 2010, 10:00am – 3:00pm
  • Hobart: Parliament House, Committee Room 2
    Friday 30 April 2010, 10:00am – 3:00pm

Sometime in May or June, a hearing will be held in Canberra.  Then in July other state capital hearings will follow.

Let your local media know.  Speak to talk back radio.  Talk about the issues, the disappearance of trained TLs in our schools.  The disappearance of TL tertiary training courses.  And the difference a trained TL can make to student literacy and learning.

Write to your federal member in support of positive action.  Talk to parents, to other teachers, to principals.  Build a TLR into the BER!!
