I understand that in some schools, such as Templestowe College, there is a lot more fluidity in regards to participation across year levels. The question/concern I have is that TC is still very much a secondary school.
I once visited a large K-12 (2000+ students) and they seemed to operate like three distinct schools. In many ways the system sets things up like this. In my own experience in a P-9, there were some activities, such as timetables, that primary schools had to accept from the secondary. The concern is that in a fluid environment, the current way of working does not seem to properly support anyone, without additional resources, which seems counter-intuitive.
I am reminded of Matt Esterman’s question of education revolution versus renaissance. A part of me thinks that from a structural perspective to achieve a ‘pre-to-post’ outcome we are going to need a revolution to accommodate some of these changes. Whether it be applications, data frameworks or industrial relations, there is significant work still required.
I am happy to be wrong and appreciate any thoughts on the matter.
