A watered-down OBE for 2007

After months of dispute, teachers and the state government have reached an agreement allowing 17 Outcomes Based Education courses to proceed in 2007. Trying to head off the looming teachers revolt, WA Premier Alan Carpenter and Education Minister Ljiljanna Ravlich unveiled a hybrid teaching model, which ditched some of the more controversial aspects of OBE. Under the new deal, teachers will be able to use existing teaching programs, courses will use more traditional syllabus formats and the assessment will be lessened to diminish the amount of paperwork and marking that was feared by the teachers.
