The NSW government is backing a plan to increase the required ATAR for aspiring teachers to 70.

It comes after NSW One Nation leader Mark Latham’s inquiry into the Measurement and Outcome Based Funding in NSW Schools.

Last year, students who scored ATARs as low as 49.65 were admitted into universities.

Mark Latham said that parents would be horrified that students who flunked out in their HSC are being accepted into teaching degrees.
