ACARA CEO addresses The Age School Summit23 March 2022
ACARA CEO, David de Carvalho, recently took to the stage as part of the annual The Age Schools Summit to discuss the Australian Curriculum.
“The issue of what we teach to the younger generation is always going to be value laden. That’s because a national curriculum is an expression of the community's aspirations for its children. It's a self-expression of the community's values,” he told the audience.
“But we also need to recognise that we live in an increasingly diverse culture. Whether that degree of diversity and difference in world views becomes a problem for us depends on us, and on how we educate our children.”
