Graeme Newman joined the Centre for International Research on Educational Systems in early 2016. He is an experienced teacher, having worked in secondary schools in the western suburbs of Melbourne for over 30 years.
Graeme has worked in a variety of senior roles within schools. He brings to CIRES his extensive experience as a teacher and school program administrator, providing valuable perspectives on how schools operate.
Graeme’s academic interest is to document and reflect on the interplay of government policies and school practice. This he is doing by developing a case study of the government secondary college he is still connected to. Graeme hopes to demonstrate the vitality of ‘on the ground’ programs that emerge within schools and often develop independently of government policies.
