Paperwork busting plan for NSW principals

September 11, 2017

NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes wants school principals focused on education not chores.

NSW principals will be freed up from drowning in paperwork, coordinating school repairs and IT troubleshooting under a $50 million-a-year plan aimed at getting school leaders back to teaching.

NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes is due to announce details of the plan, which will give principals more time to be more focused on actual teaching, curriculum planning, teacher quality and student progress, on Tuesday, The Daily Telegraph reports.

The plan comes after a study by Deloitte found that principals in NSW's public schools spend just 30 per cent of their day on teaching and learning.
