Exceptional teachers for disadvantaged schools
Burnett, Bruce M. & Lampert, Jo (2011) Exceptional teachers for disadvantaged schools. In Strategic Regional Leadership for the Future Conference, TAFE Directors Australia, Port Macquarie, NSW, pp. 43-45.
A major issue facing Australia is addressing an education system that OECD’s data from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) show is of high quality, but low equity. In other words, while Australian schools score relatively high in terms of international benchmarks related to quality, the same cannot be said in relation to indicators of social background or socioeconomic status (SES). The federal and state responses to this dilemma can be found in a coordinated national agenda targeting social inclusion. Two key policy areas within this agenda relate directly to the Exceptional Teachers for Disadvantaged Schools Project (ETDS). These are the Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) and the National Partnership Agreements on Low Socio-economic Status School Communities and Improving Teacher Quality.
