Free Debate with Teach For Australia

Free Debate members ran a facilitated session for Teach For AustraliaÕs recruits as part of the TransformED conference. Focusing on the question ÒWhat levers are most important in transforming outcomes for disadvantaged students?Ó members of the conference worked with experts from a variety of fields relating to education. Each group advocated for their assigned field, arguing passionately that either government, community, principals or teachers were best placed to effect change for disadvantaged students. The session concluded with the participants voting for the group they found most convincing, via a poll accessed on the Free Debate website.
