Challenging Behaviour is Not Tolerated in Our Schools


"Discipline is just one area where schools are benefitting from our reforms which put more power and responsibility in the hands of principals - who ultimately know what is best for their schools", says Education Minister Adrian Piccoli to News.com au.

"Public schools are also part of a system and we are able to set high expectations for the behaviour of students and the standard of discipline in all schools.  There has to be discipline in the classroom for learning to occur, that's why I asked my department to strengthen the Code of Conduct, which includes ways teachers can interact with their students.

"Principals do have authority to take strong action in relation to unacceptable or challenging behaviour. Such challenging behaviour is not tolerated in our schools."
