IE March 2024

Welcome to the first edition of IE for 2024.

Read how education persists in war-torn Ukraine. We interview an Australian teacher educating Ukrainian students via Zoom. The students are determined to study, despite the devastation around them.

Last year’s widely publicised Hollywood Writers’ Strike was just one example of a surge in union activism in the US. Could Australia follow suit? Read Boom time: The rise of unions in the US

IE recognises the work of support staff and focuses on how their roles are changing, and we talk to a school maintenance officer about his daily life.

One Catholic school in Newcastle is setting the standard with period positivity, providing free tampons and pads. Is it time for others to follow its lead?

We also cover unionism in the classroom, disruptive behaviour, and the rise of artificial intelligence.
