A response to the BOSTES Review

Last week the Review of the NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) released their review. The recommendations are a bit disappointing. I wrote another blog post for EduResearch Matters with my colleague Donna Pendergast. The post outlines the areas of concern. Fundamentally though, there is an abiding sense that Australia is full of stakeholders in education, rather than partners. Until the partnership notion is fully embraced then I think we will continue to feel the effects of division and mistrust.
