[Oz-teachers] Nelson on Education

Hi all

As national president of a peak education body I struggle to be successful as an advocate and lobbyist.
For example I have been trying for 12 months to get 30 minutes with the Government Members' Committee on Education Science and Training (I was advised to go that way, obviously not the way to go). I have asked DEST for a meeting. I have written to CEOs and state/territory education ministers.
When you aren't well connected you don't have a way in.

Do we have to do something wildly attention grabbing?
Any ideas gratefully accepted.

  I agree with Don and Trish Wades reply about the need to be pro-active ourselves with educational issues.The first line of defense is the children , parents and then our professional collegues.It is important to have a National Curriculum for all children and it definitely would saves thousands of dollars in wasted funds.
