Some of the best teachers in NSW, including teachers from Warilla High School, have met at Parliament House to share ideas on improving learning outcomes for students, cutting red tape and increasing the time and resources teachers have to deliver the best education for students.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said the inaugural meeting had established a Teacher Advisory Group - one of several unique initiatives giving teachers, principals, and students a direct voice in education policy.
“It’s so important we hear from a wide variety of stakeholders, particularly those considered the best in their profession, to help shape the future of education in our state,” Mr Perrottet said.
“We can benefit from their experience and ideas on ways of better supporting their profession to modernise and grow.”
