By Julie Sonnemann and Peter Goss
Price: $27.30


The authors discuss why Australia’s young high achievers are turning their backs on teaching, arguing that research shows they want to make a difference in their careers, and are interested in teaching, but choose professions with better earning potential and more career challenge. The authors recommend a bold reform package they claim could double the number of high achievers choosing teaching within a decade. They outline three key reforms that would be required, and argue that, over time, this package would transform Australia’s teaching workforce, and also that the typical Australian student would gain an extra six to 12 months of learning by Year 9, possibly much more
