Canberra Liberals deliver independent review into literacy for ACT children


The Canberra Liberals have welcomed support for their call for an independent, full review of literacy in ACT public schools.

“This is a win for the community, a win for schools and most of all, a win for all children and students in the ACT,” said Shadow Education Minister Jeremy Hanson.

“We have been working for months with parents, educators, the unions and experts to shine a light on this issue, culminating in our call for a full review into literacy achievement in the ACT.

“That call has now been agreed to in the Legislative Assembly today.

“We know there is no single or simple answer, but I am very pleased the government has now accepted the need to address this issue and I look forward to continuing to work with all groups to stand up for education standards in the ACT,” Mr Hanson concluded
