school class squareThe national curriculum review team has released an interim report. The 17-page report, completed in March but released mid-June, outlines the process being followed by reviewers Kevin Donnelly and Ken Wiltshire as they prepare their final report by the end of July.

The report does not offer any recommendations, but does reiterate the reviewers’ goal of “[getting the curriculum] right before it is fully implemented across the country”.

Earlier this year, ACL supporters were encouraged to participate in the review process. ACL’s submission emphasised the need to restore balance to the curriculum, highlighting Bible literacy, freedom for faith-based schools, and Australia’s Christian heritage as important areas lacking coverage in the curriculum.

The final report is due by July 31. Click here to read the interim report.
