QASSP's advocacy document "Reimagining Education in Queensland's State Primary Schools" and its supporting white paper, explores how we might create a new story of schooling. The Association also produces position papers on topics of key importance.
This position paper outlines strategies considered essential to provide high quality educational services in the critical early years of formal learning. It has implications for policy, programming, pedagogy, recurrent funding and human resources.
The most effective way to increase student achievement is to increase the effectiveness of classroom teaching practices. This position paper establishes why Queensland state primary school children would be better prepared for the later years of schooling if their teachers were supported to grow, refine and expand their skills by experienced and able Heads of Department – Curriculum.
