Increase in quality and funding of ESL teaching

Aug 1, 2008 | Advocacy | 0 comments

In late 2008 we did some intensive lobbying at the door of the ACT Minister for Education, Andrew Barr, for a much needed increase in quality and funding of ESL teaching. We expressed ATESOL ACT’s serious concern over present trends which we feel have reduced ESL teaching to a level that is neither professional nor responsible towards children from an ESL background. The Minister took note of our concerns and we will continue to be vigilant in this area and seek the necessary changes.
