Hey, I’m a husband of an Early Childhood teacher who currently works in the ACT Public School system.
My wife has been told by the principal at the school where she teaches, that next year there will be a “clean sweep”.
Long term Early Childhood teachers (30 years) are being told they will be moved to teach Kindergarten or First Class next year. This is placing many staff under stress and they have made the decision to leave teaching.
This is not an offer to accept a change, it is what they are told is going to happen and if they dont like it then they should apply for the recruitment round.
So far through friends we have found that very similar things are being told to Early Childhood teaching staff at three different Schools.
Executive staff knew nothing of these changes until told by teachers. Parents of students have no idea what is coming- another disgrace!
So does anyone else know of similar happenings?
It could easily appear that there is some sort of directive to Principals as this is happening at more than one School.
