Have you or your children challenged a teacher about something scientific? Were you treated fairly? Are you a teacher – if so, what are your thoughts on the new curriculum?
I would like to find out more about what is happening in our schools. I’m considering the new National Australian Curriculum, but comments related to the old curriculum and non-Australian curriculums are useful too. What kind of culture do our schools create. I would most appreciate both personal stories (privacy ensured) and comments about curriculum and educational matters. If you can’t write in comments, please email joanne AT this domain.

Cross Curriculum Priorities are particularly concerning. There are three areas which are required to be taught in every major subject:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures
- Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia
