Why crush them at such a young age?

Aussie Friends of Treehorn

encouraging adults to think sensitively, to care for kids, to make wise choices….with their hearts in gear, their pens active and their votes available.

NAPLAN has nothing to do with learning. It has nothing to do with teaching. It has nothing to do with real schooling. It has to do with finding fault and making money. It’s an ineffective, unreliable and invalid device that makes the most of young children’s vulnerability and it deliberately threatens their cognitive development and emotional stability

It’s called CHILD ABUSE.

That’s NAPLAN. Crush the little buggers.

We test them at 7 years of age. Year 3 !

What else can we do to damage our children’s emotional and cognitive development?

{In Finland and other advanced countries, children do not START school until after 7 years of age. By age 12, they are well ahead of the rest of the world. Do you ever wonder why?}
