- Letters from The Teacher - Your Children, Their Education, and How You Can Help

So many Australian parents are buying the government line about standardised testing of students through programs like NAPLAN and My School, which make them think they are getting results because of rankings and comparisons. But they don’t seem to realise that these new forms of assessment are actually negatively affecting our kids’ ability to gain the crucial life skills and appreciation for learning that have been, and should be, the main aim of teaching.

I learned so much about parenting and teaching from this book. I highly recommend it. It gave me a great insight into the education system and the role of teachers. I especially loved hearing about the progression of the students throughout the year. I felt a real connection to Gabbie and I hope when my kids reach school age that are lucky enough to have a dedicated teacher like Gabbie. I am definitely a better parent from listening to this book.
