School improvement – what matters most?

On Friday 10 May, Education Ministers from across Australia endorsed the Initial Teacher Education: Data Report, complied by AITSL.  

You can read a summary from the AITSL website – Initial Teacher Education – or the full report here  Initial Teacher Education: Data Report

Trying to reconcile this with the views of Pasi Salberg What if Finland’s great teachers taught in U.S. schools?

I enjoy a healthy debate and it is good to weigh up the different viewpoints surrounding school improvement.

This post and the previous one from Dr Jackie Gerstein encapsulate many parts of it – student family context, initial and ongoing teacher education, teacher effectiveness, school leadership and school climate.

What other things do you think are important to consider in terms of school improvement?
