Waiting on Scott

Education Minister Jason Clare tells a press-conference about initial teacher education, yesterday

“only 50 per cent or thereabouts who start a teaching degree finish it. If you ask any teacher, they’ll tell you that what they learned at university didn’t really give them everything they need to be ready to be a teacher in their first year out of university.” Mr Clare said Mark Scott and team’s recommendations on “how we improve initial teacher education” (CMM March 23) were due in June.
