Children ought to be the centre and the whole raison d'être for the mainstreamed schooling system. In other environments, the clients would be the starting point for developing products and services. Yet school children are rarely consulted. It's good to see a little research being undertaken to determine the effects of NAPLAN which is imposed on children. I'd suggest questions ought to be asked to determine the source of kids' fears. Children of the ages referred to would be unlikely to be exposed to debates around NAPLAN in media and other places, and so I would suggest either schools, teachers or parents have been the source of the anxieties.
I certainly believe in the merit of STEM subjects, however, actually believe we need to look further than 1 dimensional educational strategies and look at what we are doing in Education Holistically. Is STEAM still on the table for example and how successful has its concept and plan been implemented. Technology should work alongside Designers and Artists and people who are the creative thinkers and Strategists. Maybe more creative people in Politics could be a breath of fresh air, we are however emotional at times because we feel and see things others do not. Come on Education Minister, lets look at Finland and read Sir Ken Robinson's articles then lets put our heads together and strategise for the Nation, oh and yes maybe pay teachers the same as Politicians as they used to be in the past and you will have experts a plenty!
