AEU Survey of Public School Principals -- Part Two
An AEU survey of 409 Victorian public school principals revealed that 30% of secondary schools had unfilled teacher positions at the start of year.
15% of schools experienced difficulties in attracting teachers, increasing class sizes as a result.
12% of schools had teachers leaving to teach interstate in 2007.
24% of schools had teachers leaving to teach in the non-government sector in 2007.
In order to improve conditions, Victorian teachers have been left with no option but to continue industrial action.
