Australian Curriculum

So today on prac I had an interesting discussion with my mentor teacher about the Australian Curriculum. This discussion all began because he was showing me the different elements involved in One School. For those that aren’t familiar with One School it is a website that all staff working in state schools across Queensland record information about students, locate different C2C lesson plans or unit plans, so on and so forth. Now while discussing this I asked why the C2C documents were created, and why these weren’t used in other states beside Queensland. He explained that the C2C documents were our interpretation of the national curriculum and that every state had their own view on what should be taught from it. Now to me this seems slightly bizarre as wasn’t the point of the national curriculum so students across Australia were taught the same content? Maybe that was just me.
