Panel gets review process underway

Delegates to November State Council Conference were introduced to the panel members of the SSTUWA review into public education and had an opportunity to engage with them via a consultation workshop on opening day.

The panel also met with the SSTUWA school leaders reference group prior to State Council Conference for a productive time of discussion and fact gathering.

The review panel comprises of chair Dr Carmen Lawrence, Curtin University’s Dr Scott Fitzgerald, former Commissioner for Children and Young People Colin Pettit and former Perth Modern Senior High School principal Robyn White. Pamela Pollard, retired primary principal, is the panel’s executive officer.

“The single most important thing that we can do in a democracy is to have a well-educated population, and we can only achieve that if the people who are delivering that education enjoy their work,” Dr Lawrence said. A timeframe has been set for the consultation period for the review. For full details and to make a submission, visit
