Earlier this year I signed a petition regarding the number of teacher aides assigned to prep classes in Qld.
Today I received this response: http://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/vie...onses/scan.pdf
Of particular interest to me was this quote:
The decision to replace part-time sessional preschool with a full-time, universally available
Preparatory Year program was based on statewide consultations with parents, teachers and
other education stakeholders during the development of Queensland State Education 2010.
Can I ask the BubHub forum users if any of you were consulted regarding the introduction of prep??
I find it interesting how sometimes government say they consulted people before implementing something but in reality only a small percentage of the whole population was consulted. So if anyone recals being surveyed/consulted with regard to prep, can you share the questions asked etc etc?
I do have a concern for my DD (who will not be entering prep for another 4 years) going straight into a full time schooling role where in the past it was introduced part time. I also worry, should she never go into daycare/childcare, how she will adjust to it?!?
