Victoria Top of the Class in NAPLAN results

Posted by Lisa Hill on September 17, 2008

Oh Bronwyn Pike, what a disappointment you are to us all!
I’ve just read your press release about the excellent results that Victoria achieved in this years NAPLAN tests, and there is not one word of thanks or congratulations to the people who made happen – the teachers.
Far from any acknowledgement of the hard work, dedication and skill of the teaching profession, instead we get a glowing endorsement of the government’s efforts.
“Victoria has received a glowing report card in Australia’s first national testing of students, ranked among the highest performing states and territories and confirming the Brumby Government’s initiatives to improve literacy and numeracy are showing real results”.
When even our Minister for Education fails to honour our successes, why would anyone want to join the profession?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
