Remove the H&S directive that requires in State-run Secondary Schools all Design Technology classes to be taught in groups of 20 or less. Instead set the bar higher at 25 (as it has been until this year)

Why is this idea important?

This will reduce pressure on schools to hire extra Design Technology staff and equip additional rooms and give schools more freedom to accommodate the expected budget cuts in the ways schools see fit.

At present this change seems small but is extremely costly and means resource allocation is being placed outside the control of schools.
