The Gallop Report into the teaching profession was co-authored by former IEU Deputy Secretary Patrick Lee. He spoke at the IEU’s March Council meeting about its findings. Journalist Monica Crouch was there.
“Valuing the teaching profession – an independent inquiry”, published in February 2021, was commissioned by the NSW Teachers Federation to investigate how changes to the profession have impacted the workloads of teachers and principals.
The inquiry was chaired by Emeritus Professor of the University of Sydney and former West Australian Premier Geoff Gallop. He was joined by former Justice of the NSW Industrial Court and Deputy President of the NSW Industrial Relations Commission Trish Kavanagh, and Patrick Lee, who is also the former CEO of the NSW Institute of Teachers.
The panel received more than 1000 submissions from teachers and schools, academics, professional bodies, economists and education experts.
