New survey suggests two thirds of Victorian state school teachers are ‘failing basic tasks’
A new survey suggests two thirds of Victorian state school teachers are failing basic tasks or meeting the needs of students.
Those tasks include the ability to monitor student progress and giving useful feedback.
But the teacher’s union has hit back, saying the workload given to its members is ‘out of control.’
It estimates an average of two days unpaid overtime each week.
‘We should be able to ensure that our staff in schools are able to focus on their core work of teaching and learning and doing the best possible work they can for kids,’ union secretary Meredith Peace said.
‘Clearly, their workload is impacting on that at the moment.’
