Title Rules of engagement for teachers Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet The Australian Media type Country/Territory Australia Date 15/03/17 Description Researchers at Sydney’s Macquarie University recently examined the results of the Program for International Student Assessment. The international snapshot, conducted every three years by the OECD, tests 15-year-olds on reading, writing and mathematical skills. Associate professor Chris Baumann and his colleague Hana Krskova concluded better behaved students learned more, performed among the world’s best, and ultimately contributed to a more competitive workforce.
Baumann argues investment in education alone is insufficient to boost educational performance and “the way we actually run the school seems to have a massive effect on how the students perform”.
It’s a theme closely examined in two new reports, released today, by the Australian Council for Educational Research.
The body’s work provides fresh insights into the multiple factors dragging down our performance in PISA and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study.
