A couple readers have kindly (?) alerted us to the fact that Victoria’s new F-10 curriculum is now out. Yay. And yeah, this should probably be a WitCH but, really, what shouldn’t? To steal from First Dog, the list of things that shouldn’t be a WitCH is quite short.
The links to the new curriculum are carefully hidden but can be accessed here, for F-6 and 7-10 (Word, idiots). To be honest we haven’t looked, and we don’t particularly intend to. We assume VCAA has pretty much robotically followed ACARA, meaning the new Victorian F-10 curriculum will contain nothing much surprising and nothing remotely good. In particular, it probably means that any poor kid who wants to do anything of substance beyond Year 10, who wants to be capable of more than reading some boring percentage in a newspaper article, is totally screwed.
Links to everything are below. So, discuss away. If there’s some fresh hell, beneath and beyond the same old ACARA hell, we’ll take a look.
