The Greens’ Meredith Hunter has held forth on education:
To increase learning opportunities in the ACT, the Greens will:
— Increase funding to students with English as an Additional Language/Dialect to increase language proficiency standards;
— New Student Assistance Teams, to improve student engagement and better support schools and families;
— More professional development opportunities, for over 100 Learning Support Assistants;
— Expanded funding to the Therapy Assistants Program, to better support students with disability in schools; and
— Boost funding to adult literacy programs, to support lifelong learning.
