Exercise books should not be compulsory in schools, education minister Michelle Landeau has said, as the government continues to push for the compulsory purchase of all books in primary schools and primary schools should become the first stop on the government’s book-buyer’s list.
Ms Landeaux, the minister for education, said books were important to children and children should be able to read.
“We want to make sure that our children are getting books, and the books they’re reading should be books that are engaging and relevant,” she said.
“And books that encourage them to read, and that help them develop the skills they need to read.”
Ms Landegas books include a children’s book, a childrens adventure book, and a book for older children.
She said she was not opposed to books for older readers.
“There are some books that will be appropriate for younger readers, and I think that is part of the conversation we are having about what we want to see in our books,” she told reporters on Thursday.
“The reason why books are important is because we are in a learning society.”
When children get into books, we want them to develop skills and learn things.
“Ms Lamont said books are vital to children.”
I think that we want our children to have a book, but it should be one that is a safe place, that they can go and read and get a little bit of exercise,” she added.”
That is why we have the books in the first place.
“They should be safe places to read and that’s why they are being made compulsory in primary school.”
Ms Wood said the books were necessary for children to engage with the world.
“If children want to read for themselves, then they need books that they are able to engage in,” she noted.
“A book is not a playground.
A book is a space that children can read, that is where they can be creative, that’s where they learn, and it is a place that we will need for them to engage.”
It is a community place where we will have children interacting with people and other children.
So it is important that we have books for them.
“Ms Lamb said books had also been proven to increase children’s social skills.”
Books are very important to kids, and children will learn more if they have a safe and comfortable environment that they feel comfortable with,” she stressed.”
So books are great for children, but we want the books to be safe, that children feel comfortable in, and have a positive experience for children.
“The National Association of School Principals said all primary schools would be required to buy all books by March 1.
National Primary Principal Council chief executive Sue Hetherington said it was important to make book purchases compulsory.”
Parents and schools need to have access to books, so books that teach children how to use a book can be a very good investment for schools,” she was quoted as saying by the Australian Education Union.”
Teachers and school principals need to be able take a long-term approach to their books, because books can have a life of their own.
“Children need to feel comfortable and safe reading books, they need good social skills, and books can play a role in that.”
