The Treehorn Express
Who’s Treehorn? http://primaryschooling.net/?page_id=1924
Treehorn Express is dedicated to the elimination of the Kleinist-based NAPLAN in Australian schools . Kleinism is a New York version of fear-driven schooling which uses the blanket-testing ‘wmd’ called NAPLAN to destroy the reputation of public schooling and its teachers. It was introduced into Australia in 2009 without discussion or thought for the consequences. It disrespects children, devalues teachers’ professionalism and threatens the social and financial future of Australia. Corporation-initiated NAPLAN is immoral, politically driven, curriculum destructive, extremely costly, unprofessional, interruptive, and very divisive. While it is clearly aimed at the destruction of public schooling and its teachers, it sponsors standardised mediocrity in all schools.

This is a very important video clip.
It puts each of us clearly in the picture regarding the background to NAPLAN and Kleinism, copied from our friend up-over.
YOU WILL NOT SPEND A BETTER HOUR THAN WATCHING THIS
Imagine each of the speakers is Australian and is speaking about our schools. The comments apply.
It is a pity that it does not get a chance to circulate around schools.
[P.S. Notice the coffee cups : ‘Don’t Trust Corporate Media’. Yes Rupert gets a mention. See previous Treehorns]
