ISCA Media Statement – Curriculum Certainty Important for Independent Schools
The completion of the Review of the Australian Curriculum is welcomed by the Independent Schools Council of Australia (ISCA), which now looks forward to working with the Australian Government and national education authorities to determine which of these recommendations will be implemented and how this will occur.
The Australian Curriculum needs to be practical and achievable in every school environment. It needs to support excellent educational outcomes for all students, including those students with disability and/or additional needs. A balanced curriculum with enough flexibility to focus on student learning needs is an important goal.
Independent schools, parents and their teachers are vitally interested in school curriculum issues and it is clear that the reviewers have carefully considered the views of the sector.
