OPEN LETTER Seeking Clarification of the VIC Government's Policy on Languages Education in Victoria - FOR DISTRIBUTION
Dear MLTAV member / SLA President,
A recent AGE newspaper article has alerted MLTAV to the (now confirmed) fact that the VIC government has changed its policy on Language Education in government schools. This news came as a surprise to the MLTAV and we are seeking urgent clarification on behalf of Languages professionals.
Please feel free to distribute this Open Letter to the Minister further through your networks and/or publications. We also request that you support this letter by emailing the Minister for Education
and your local MP. Please feel free to adapt the content of the MLTAV letter for your own communication with the Minister.
This is a critical matter for Languages professionals in Victoria and we need to act quickly and in unison on the matter.
Andrew Ferguson President, MLTAV
