The Friday Forum with former Education Minister Peter Chandler, retired bush teacher and education advocate Henry Gray and Tabby fudge from COGSO flesh out contemporary issues with education.
1. The results from NAPLAN and other reports show poor results for students. Is this a Territory problem? Do NT urban areas compare equally with other states?
2. There is a perceived issue with a lack of parental involvement in remote and regional schooling. How can more involvement be encouraged?
3. In spite of efforts by everyone, why is it that we are continuing to have poorer student attendance in remote and regional areas?
