The disconnect between Commonwealth and State policy approaches has been starkly highlighted recently in the arenas of the Abbott government’s immigration policy and the confusion which exists within Queensland schools over Languages learning. Cynthia Dodd, President of the Modern Language Teachers Association (MLTAQ) says while the Federal Government is planning an intake of 190,000 migrants this year, with an increased focus on skilled migration and families, the Queensland Department of Education’s tardiness in making definitive moves with Languages learning seems to be at odds with the Federal direction.
