Front page of the Sunday Telegraph today:
Maths would become a compulsory HSC subject under a radical proposal to address a statewide skills shortage.
Excuse me. Since when is the compulsory teaching of mathematics radical? I hadn’t heard that maths was a voluntary subject in the HSC. No wonder Australian students are falling behind.
I suppose that underwater basket weaving is compulsory in today’s HSC.
The NSW Teachers Federation [sic] should take full responsibility for the decline in education standards in NSW. This organisation is a blight on society, preaching mediocrity and eschewing intellectual challenge. The Federation operates by mantra not philosophy or enlightenment.
It is no surprise that the front page is also taken up with Kyle unleashed. The type of people who listen to Kyle Sandilands are the product of the NSW education system.
