Firstly, I would like to clarify that I do not think poorly of teachers' intellect. I never wrote that, I never thought that and I don't think that. I was commenting on the course of study not the person taking the course of study and there is a difference. I feel that, by and large, teachers are let down by the system. I feel they're let down by a lot of people actually but that's getting away from the point at hand.
There are many tertiary education courses currently available and they vary widely. I should have stipulated which ones I meant (primary and BEds and in which ******s, online v offline etc) as they are not uniform, are not consistent and do change depending on which state or territory you're studying in. Again, I should have been explicit about the requirements in Qld as states and territories do vary in their requirements and, again, they are not uniform. Yes, of course, a teaching degree has exams, assignments, essays, pracs etc like other degrees but not every degree is the same and I have come across quite a few that do not offer units in the areas I mentioned.
I also agree that a national registration body is necessary.
Hope that clears things up.

The dept of education recognises the qualifications and experience of pre-2004 teachers and will automatically accredit them at proficient level by 2018 when they will then have to participate in 100 hours of professional development every 5 years to maintain their accreditation.
Teachers who graduated after October 2004 had to work up to proficient level and those who were/are already proficient have to maintain that by doing 100 hours of professional development every 5 years.

Only catching up on budget night.
Very disappointed with the promised tax break for those earning over $80k. 😕

I'm not surprised in the least, particularly in relation to where tax cuts are going.
But at least it was no where to the depths of the Hockey budget.
And I really don't support the axing of the School Kids Bonus. Even a public education is expensive with uniforms, text books, stationery, camps. Given they have not taken away neg gearing, surely they can give low income a few hundred bucks to help with school expenses.

The whole thing is a complete non event.
Dared to be different? By doing nothing?

it certainly is a pretty bland budget
however - in an election year that is a good thing. There is no cash splash to buy votes .... which the cynic in me was expecting.

I do think they should have increased the lower brackets too though. Bracket creep doesn't just happen for people earning $80k.
