Toxic Teachers: hand-pick the best?
There are growing calls for a review of the standards for selecting appropriate candidates to become Teachers.
A group of eight of Australia's research focused Universities, says students with average or below average HSC results, are being accepted into the profession.

The federal tertiary education minister says students are given too much choice in what they want to study, leaving Australia with a shortage of in-demand skilled workers.
Senator Chris Evans says universities are too focussed on responding to student demand rather than demand from employers.
The senator acknowledges student choice is one of the great things about democracy, but says the focus needs to shift to employers.
Senator Evans has also questioned the usefulness of traditional teaching methods at university, saying their value is being tested by the rise of the web-based education.
Universities are warning Australia is at risk of training a generation of "toxic teachers" who will pass on their own deficiencies to students. Jason Morrison asks if teaching is more about inspiring the students.
