Schooling Australia: an education that builds a nation : Comments

By Fiona Mueller and Deidre Clary, published 9/8/2018

Nation-building is a 'new world' discourse applied to large continents (e.g. Africa, Asia, North and South America) where colonising forces decided on innovations in policy and infrastructure.

Agree. With the following inclusions. Naplan needs to be harmonised and completely digitised.

Phonetics needs to be included/mandated in our early education models and we need some technical and IT training to be included at the high school level along with a returned to the discipline of military cadets as opposed to compulsory sports.

Carrot stick approach to get kids into more healthy pursuits rather than permanently positioned behind a keyboard.

University entrance exams need to be conducted off campus and by an entirely independent and completely impartial operator. Afer all that, we need to encourage self-reliance, cooperative enterprise and innovation.

Finally, we need to invest in our own people and their better ideas, as opposed to selling the joint or everything not nailed down!

Should've called it 'Schooling Australia: Globalist New World Order Indoctrination that Destroys Your Nation'

This pair highlight most of what is wrong with this new feminist model of education.

Hell they even boast about their planned brain washing of students they get hold of.

Quote; Particular emphasis is placed on approaches to schooling that will produce active and informed citizens who value Australia's social, cultural and linguistic diversity, possess an understanding of Australian systems of government, history and culture, are able to relate to and communicate across cultures, and act as responsible local and global citizens.

Not a damn word about making our kids competent in reading, writing or arithmetic. In fact we see a dramatic downgrading of math & physics in an attempt to make it more comprehensible to the female brain. That the principals are no longer understood by kids coming out of senior high school does not matter, as long as they are well schooled in United Nations goals.

Of course they don't want to borrow a successful model from Singapore, not left enough for this pair. And of course, not as many jobs for academics like them, stuffing up a once great system, with trendy garbage.

Thank god I won't live long enough to see the total collapse this stupidity will bring, pity about my grand kids though.

Education in Australia lately has become a non-event. Most brains have been imported & the dead ones are on huge public salaries.
