Mr McGUIRE (Broadmeadows) (11:47:57): (225) My constituency question is to the Minister for Education. When will teachers from Meadow Heights Primary School receive expert training as part of the primary mathematics and science specialists initiative? The Victorian government is investing $27 million over four years through the initiative to build teacher capacity and to improve student results in maths and science at more than 100 disadvantaged Victorian government schools. Schools that have previously participated achieved above-average improvement in maths and science, with some students more than doubling the expected results in maths. The Labor government has set ambitious targets to increase the number of students reaching the highest level of achievement in maths and science to help prepare the next generation for the jobs of the future.
