In this C4IE blog, Linda Graham, Lara Maia-Pike, and Jenna Gillett-Swan consider what the 2024 May Budget means for the inclusion of students in priority equity groups, and those with unidentified disabilities, in higher education. In the week leading up to Budget Night, the Minister for Education, Hon Jason Clare MP, announced changes to HELP debt indexation and paid placements in teaching, nursing, and social work.   The minister flagged that these announcements were part of the initial reforms the government will implement in response to the Universities Accord Final Report releas ..read more

Professor Graham advocated for the adoption of restorative justice approaches that educate and build empathy, rather than solely punitive measures. She suggested methods like inquiry projects or providing opportunities for affected students to express thei ..read more

Australia doesn't need a 'Behaviour Curriculum'. We need to implement Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)

In a recent blog post, Melissa Close and Professor Linda Graham from C4IE challenge the Australian Senate Inquiry’s push for a ‘Behaviour Curriculum’ aimed at reducing classroom disruptions. They argue that this recommendation overly simplifies the complex nature of student behaviour, particularly overlooking the needs of specific students, such as those with ADHD, by not accounting for the diverse factors influencing behaviour. Instead, Close and Graham advocate for the adoption of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), proposing a more holistic educational approach. In their piece, they sugges ..read more

In their response to the recent Senate inquiry into challenging student behaviour in Australian schools, Glenda McGregor and Martin Mills highlight the need for a more nuanced approach to addressing these issues. They acknowledge that schools are workplaces where safety should be a priority, but they also point out that the recommendations of the inquiry, particularly those focusing on initial teacher education (ITE) and classroom management, miss the mark. McGregor and Mills argue that the inquiry’s emphasis on ‘explicit instruction’ and traditional classroom structures overlooks the complex ..read more

By Professor Linda Graham On the 13th of December 2023, the Centre for Inclusive Education will be launching the second edition of the best-selling book, Inclusive Education for the 21st Century. I have been asked many times by owners of the first edition whether there is much of a difference between this edition and the last, and there is. While all chapters have been updated, there are 11 new chapters in this edition, either because some have been completely rewritten (e.g., legislation, Social Emotional Learning, etc) or because we have included new chapters to cover additional topics (e.g ..read more

How can segregated special schools still be a choice?

A lack of commitment to ending the binary education system of mainstream and special schooling has once again been justified by the argument of parental choice. Two alternate recommendations made by the Disability Royal Commission regarding the future of special schools leave parents, still, bearing the weight of deciding between two unacceptable schooling options for their children with disability. The vision and ethical leadership that are required to move Australia beyond an educational status quo continue to elude us.  In this post, Dr Glenys Mann revisits her 2022 blog on parental ch ..read more

Schools across Australia are facing one of the biggest threats to adolescents’ long-term health: vaping. In this blog Professor Marilyn Campbell explores why vapes are so problematic, and what can be done to support both students and school leaders in an era that requires innovative approaches to health messaging.  E-cigarettes, often called “vapes” look like metal pens, watches, or USBs. They are battery-powered to heat the cartridge of liquids inserted into them, turning the liquid into vapour which is inhaled. Vapes come in various appealing flavours such as watermelon, strawberry and ..read more
