The Australian Government has today released the Review of the Australian Curriculum.

The Hon. Christopher Pyne MP
Minister for Education

The Government has also released an Initial Australian Government Response as a starting point for discussions with states and territories and other key stakeholders on how to strengthen and refine the Australian Curriculum.

The Minister for Education, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, will take the Review and the Initial Australian Government Response to the Education Council of state and territory education ministers in December for consideration.

The Government’s Initial Response focusses on five key themes of the Review:

  • addressing the identified concerns of an overcrowded curriculum;
  • improving parental engagement around the curriculum;
  • improving accessibility for all students – particularly those with disability;
  • rebalancing the curriculum – ensuring that a range of views are taught; and
  • reviewing the governance of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) – ensuring its members have the highest expertise and that it operates independently of government.
