Job Culture
A very poor system that ignored research with poorly informed decision making.
My school has a very dynamic and positive learning culture that embraces the wider community.

DECD is a system that appears to be confused and focused on making education purely a business whilst paying attention to only a few limited voices within itself.
Pros
Great holidays.
Cons
Inconsistent employment and stuck in the 1980s.
