Time to act on Australia’s education decline

Time to act on Australia’s education decline

11 December 2015

The Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT) is calling on universities and education systems to start acting on the many reports proposing ways to halt Australia’s decline in education through initiatives in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Today, the Office of the Chief Scientist has issued a position paper titled ‘Transforming STEM teaching in primary schools: everybody’s business’ which calls for the transformation of STEM education in primary schools through raising the preparedness and quality of primary teacher training.

AAMT supports the sentiments and proposals expressed in the position paper, and is keen to work with universities and education systems to see ideas realised.
