I still love the story of Joan’s first incursion into education policy as a young mother. The school principal at Croydon North Primary School told the new parents of beginners that their child would be in a class of 54 and Joan stood up and said “No he won’t!” The next day, in a group of mums assembled at the school gate, Joan asked that very dangerous question: “What are we going to do about it?” That’s where the education action started. Joan and a few of the other mums decided they’d go and sit outside the Minister’s office. They all took their kids – seven or eight in total, and all pre-schoolers. So the Minister did come out! And eventually they got two new classrooms. And of course they then needed teachers. You can imagine – it was great media to have these classrooms with no teachers or students. About half a dozen mothers decided they needed a public campaign to get teachers in the classrooms. Joan always said that it was here that she learnt about media skills – getting your facts right, knowing who to encourage, and not just being about attacking – that you had to show some understanding. For Joan, the most important lesson of all was you had to do it with other people. Joan always stood by this – she was one of nature’s great collaborators.

ثنائي منتدى إشارات الخيار I think Education is still her great contribution. Her work as an Australian Schools Commissioner from 1973-1978 was remarkable – the Disadvantaged Schools Program, the “Girls, School and Society” Report which spelled the end to any distinction in school curricula between boys and girls, the Innovations Grants Program, and Community Education Centres. Teachers and parents worked together on programs which were carried through with openness and accountability and which unleashed a torrent of energy that improved outcomes for students dramatically. When Joan finally became Minister for Education in 1988, she oversaw some great changes. In the ten years from 1982 to 1992 the number of Victorian students going on to Years 10,11,& 12 increased by 22%. The number of Victorian University students increased by 30% and the number of Victorian TAFE students by 40%. Children with disabilities were integrated into mainstream schools, the major reform of the VCE was developed and implemented, and parents became involved in decision-making in schools; including in the selection of principals.

guadagnare con le opzioni binarie è possibile Joan knew more people than just about anyone in Victoria and she knew their stories. Our families used to go camping together and Joan would go missing. Where would you find her? Down at the shower block absorbed in conversation with someone about the state of their school. And ten years later she’d meet them again and ask for an update. Not only did Joan know people but she cared about them. Just about everyone in this room will have their own story about how Joan has touched their lives. This week, so many people have talked to me about that characteristic. She made us believe in ourselves.You could do anything after talking to Joan.

About her being the first woman Premier of Victoria and what an example she was to a generation of young women at that time. Above all though, Joan was great company, still interested in every aspect of life – people, books, ideas, politics, babies, theatre, football – a complete person. We love you dearest sister.
