Message from BOSTES President

Welcome to the first edition for 2015 of the BOSTES Bulletin.

BOSTES was created just over a year ago as a forum for building authoritative commentary on teaching standards and the quality of student learning.

The new organisation brought together the three cornerstones of education standards - curriculum, student assessment and teacher quality.

This year BOSTES will take another step forward in fulfilling its charter. An important aspect of our work in 2015 will be disseminating research that builds on the policies and programs announced over 2014. BOSTES will identify research priorities in close consultation with teachers, teacher representatives and all stakeholders.

Of course, BOSTES relies completely on the expertise and support of teachers and principals. This year will be no different. I look forward to working with your organisations in the interest of students, and improving still further one of the world's great education systems.
