EDUCATION Minister Adrian Piccoli last week launched Great Teaching, Inspired Learning, a paper aimed at ensuring that the standard of teaching in NSW ranks with the best in the world.
Representatives from the Department of Education, Board of Studies, and NSW Institute of Teachers contributed to the paper, which Mr Piccoli said was designed to trigger debate about the quality of teaching in NSW schools in the education world and the broader community.
"This is the ideal time for us to be having this conversation," he said. "We have new national teaching standards and curriculum, and we have a new model for funding public schools and we have a new wave of teachers emerging from our universities."
Consultation will continue until November 2 and the findings will be released early next year.
