NAPLAN’S YOKE IS BACK

EDUCATIONAL POINTS TO PONDER

If one good thing came from COVID-19 impacts upon education in 2020, it was the cancellation of the NAPLAN testing regime.

I had hoped the program with its many weaknesses would stay gone. But no, it is back in May for 2021 with its many weaknesses would stay gone. But no, it is back in May for 2021.

Introduced in 2008, NAPLAN became a totally misrepresented program and an unfortunate gauge by which school success was measured. The scheme was one that distorted and misrepresented the purpose of schools.

So now we’re back in the land of the future and the future is NAPLAN. Once more educational systems and schools and everybody connected with them will be within themselves into a frenzy in order to make the most of this wretched and misused testing regime.
