Robyn Grace, The Age‘s Education Editor, has a wide-ranging article today, on how to fix Australia’s education system. Grace’s article is titled,
Abolish the ATAR, make teachers repeat: The big ideas to shake up our education system
Grace’s article quotes the usual Smart People: Pasi Sahlberg, John Hattie, Geoff “too much basics” Masters, and so on. These go-to clowns suggest a number of old and new ways to paint the deckchairs.
We can’t be bothered thinking hard about this drive-by pontification. If anybody believes that some suggestion in the article might make more than an iota of difference we’ll give it some thought. Otherwise, we’ll go back to betting on the football.
Greg Ashman has undertaken the work that we declined, and has responded in detail to Grace’s clown posse. Greg’s Substack article is here.
