Liberals renew call to move Year 7 into high school  

The State Liberals have renewed calls for the Weatherill Government to transition Year 7 from primary school into high school.
The release of the latest Program for International Student Assessment reveals South Australia’s education system continues to lag behind at a time when Australia is declining internationally.

“South Australia is the only jurisdiction in Australia that still has Year 7 students in primary school and has made no plans for a transition to high school,” said Shadow Minister for Education John Gardner.
“It’s time that we prepare to bring our Year 7 students in line with the national curriculum.
“The national curriculum has a focus on specialist maths, science and english teaching for Year 7 students.
“Moving Year 7 students into high school would ensure that our students are not left behind their interstate counterparts.”
