JLN & Greens release Education policies
Both the Tasmanian Greens and the Jacqui Lambie Network (JLN) announced their funding plans for Education, if elected on March 3.
The Greens would employ 250 more teachers, 200 more teacher assistants, as well as increasing the number of social workers, school psychologists and speech therapists.
The JLN would create 250 additional teaching jobs, raise university entry requirements for would-be teachers and introduce new meaning that teachers would need to undertake a postgraduate equivalent five-year degree.
We know the importance of school support staff to help Tasmanian children learn and develop and to keep our schools running, more of these workers are needed to ensure our young people don’t fall through the cracks.
