Ending the lesson lottery: how to improve curriculum planning in schools

Publisher
Teachers School curriculum Learning and teaching Australia
Description

This report finds that most teachers carry a heavy curriculum planning load, and too often are left to try their best in near-impossible circumstances.
 
A Grattan Institute survey of 2,243 teachers and school leaders across Australia, conducted for this report, finds that only 15 per cent of teachers have access to a common bank of high-quality curriculum materials for all their classes. Even more troubling, teachers in disadvantaged schools are only half as likely to have access to a common bank as teachers in advantaged schools.

This report outlines a road map for a new partnership between governments, Catholic and independent sector leaders, principals, and teachers, in which governments and sector leaders acknowledge the heavy lifting involved in curriculum planning and provide schools and teachers with clearer guidance and more practical support.
