Election Survey - Commonwealth 2014 - Q7


Q7 - Education

The national curriculum currently being introduced in schools throughout Australia has been criticised for - among other things - being too detailed and inflexible, sidelining great texts of English literature, a flawed approach to teaching reading and a biased approach to history that marginalises Christianity.

Would you support a rewrite of the national curriculum to give states greater flexibility and to cover the key role Judeo-Christian values and the Bible have played in our culture and democracy?

Australian Labor Party 

The Federal Labor Government’s implementation of the Australian Curriculum is an historic education reform for Australia. For the first time, students across Australia will be studying the same curriculum in English, maths, science, history, geography and the arts. Work is also well underway on developing the curriculum for Chinese, Italian, health and physical education, civics and citizenship, technologies and economics and business.

The Australian Curriculum is improving quality and efficiency in our schools by:

  • providing clear consistent content and standards for all Australian students
  • making the transition to a new school easier for children moving to a different state
  • facilitating the sharing of the best curriculum resources across state borders

The Australian Curriculum has been developed by the Australian Curriculum and Reporting Authority (ACARA) following broad consultation with teachers, principals, professional teaching associations, parents as well as the broader community through a range of public consultation sessions. The curriculum content currently being implemented throughout Australian schools has been endorsed by every state and territory.

Liberal National Coalition

Since the first draft of the national curriculum, the Coalition has been calling for it to give appropriate weight to our Western and Judaeo-Christian heritage as a nation. It has improved since the first draft, but the Coalition does not view the curriculum as a static document and we will continue to review it if elected.
