Monkeys and Pineapples.

Despite its crudities, this presentation has a useful list of conscience joggers for those who don’t take much notice of school children and the impact of NAP:LAN. It describes the way that Australian schooling will be going if we don’t ban NAPLAN….the gimmicks we’ll have to use to divert the anguish and stress that the data-miners believe are necessary for good scores. Monkey antics don’t work, but then, NAPLAN test-loving data –miners wouldn’t comprehend that.

Coming to a test factory near you if you keep disrespecting your fellow human beings….school children. Let’s join the anti-violence campaign and ban NAPLAN.
