The Education Minister is calling for teachers to be given better training to manage classroom discipline.

Dan Tehan says he’s shocked by the levels of abuse experienced by teachers.

Research from the OECD shows Australia ranks among the worst in the world for disruptive classrooms.

The survey of more than 14,000 students from 760 schools, revealed 40 per cent said there was high levels of noise and disorder, that students didn’t listen to the teacher and “they found it difficult to learn”.

Australia ranked 63rd out of 68 countries.

Minister Tehan tells John Stanley graduates need more training on management.

“[We’ve] got to be making sure that our trainee teachers have got the skills and are equipped to be able to deal with managing classrooms.

“But also we’ve got to make sure, that when it comes to parents in the broader community, that we understand how important it is that we have the proper respect for teachers.”
