Treehorn is the hero of an easy-to-read, sad children’s book: “The Shrinking of Treehorn” by Florence Heidi Parry. It clearly illustrates the disregard that adults demonstrate towards children at school. Even his principal and his teacher give him ‘short shift’.The message is clear when applied to children’s worries about fear-based testing regimes. Nobody cares.

What Bureaucrats Said About Testing – 30 Years ago?

This is the editorial from an occasional six-page newsletter that was sent to every teacher in Queensland in the early 80s. This particular one was so popular with teachers, who cared about children’s achievements, that – by teacher request – it was re-printed in June 1983.
