Behavioural issues in schools are very real. In many schools, teachers spend as much time on matters of discipline and student control as they do on teaching. Poor behaviour of the few, deprive many students of learning opportunities. It is one of the reasons parents enrol their children in private schools.
More education money needs to be spent on teaching and learning needs and less on building and infrastructure. Facilities are being oversupplied while educational programs are being stretched. Expenditure balance is needed.
All the very best to our NT students and teachers for the upcoming school holiday. Your learning responsibility and teaching efforts earn the appreciation of parents and community. Have a great break; you deserve it.
