Valuing teachers

Discussion of matter of public importance

MADAM ASSISTANT SPEAKER (Ms Lee): Madam Speaker has received letters from Ms Cody, Mrs Dunne, Mr Hanson, Mrs Kikkert, Ms Lee, Ms Orr, Mr Pettersson and Mr Wall proposing that matters of public importance be submitted to the Assembly. In accordance with standing order 79, Madam Speaker has determined that the matter proposed by Ms Cody be submitted to the Assembly, namely:

The importance of valuing and supporting ACT teachers.

MS CODY (Murrumbidgee) (3.42): I am so glad that my MPI has been submitted for discussion today, because valuing teachers is an especially important topic at the moment. There are several major debates going on in our community about education. It is important that we make sure that those debates are had in an intelligent way. They are debates about ending homophobic discrimination in private schools. They are debates about the future of NAPLAN and about school funding. They are debates about how we make our education system stronger and ensure that every child, not just the ones with wealthier parents, gets the best start in life, and debates about what we do with the kids, like me, who did not fit in at school.
