No fair-dinkum teacher likes NAPLAN.
It breaches all ethical rules.
In a school of repute there is no fan;
There’s learning without measurement tools.
Theme song: ‘Care for Kids’

Teacher Bashing 102
THE SEASON IS OPEN The Queen’s Birthday attack on student teachers was followed today by the same paper’s editorial comment: “Testing Time in Schools”, plus an article headed “Class act needs top teachers” and the heading to four letters read “Educators Fail basic Test.” Just couldn’t help it….FAIL….it’s a favourite word…..could they?
TV current affairs program, Today Tonight, followed hot on the heels and featured a ridiculous spelling contest designed to expose more of the teaching profession’s weaknesses. It was obvious that there was no other purpose. It even showed a shot of the newspaper article “Failing the Test”. It was a plain crazy [click below] kamikaze-type attack, using the trickiest of words that destroyed the credibility of the program itself in its attempt to injure others; and it was aided by profound comments of the Messiah. Some people will be influenced, I suppose.
Fawning followers and NAPLAN testucators must take responsibility for this and future attacks on teachers and pupils.
You know very well of the damage that you do.
You can stop it tomorrow.
You know that.
