CLICK for WEL Policy on Education.
WEL is concerned about educational discrimination in the encouragement of men as opposed to women to train as primary teachers.
We call on the Government to address matters concerning women in regard to the cost of University education.
WEL believes there may need to be a survey of University entrants to discover whether women are affected by the increased costs. The provision of child care at university campus’ is of utmost importance to young parents – men as well as women, and we hope this is addressed by all Government parties.
Early childhood education
Note the article by Barbara Wertheim, Victorian WEL Australia member:
Early childhood education is the first and perhaps the most fundamental building block in our education system. In emphasizing that this service is primarily part of the education system, we will also give proper recognition to the expertise of the people, mostly women, who work in the field.
