Best and brightest offered bursary to become teachers

A Labor federal government would offer Australia's best and brightest tax-free bursaries of $40,000 to become teachers.

Deputy Opposition leader Tanya Plibersek announced the plan today ((Mon 18))  saying a career in teaching should be a first choice for high achievers rather than a fall-back option.

The announcement from Labor comes after the federal government announced if re-elected it would cancel the uni debts of teachers who commit to working for four years in remote indigenous communities.
