In 2014, Gabrielle Stroud was a very dedicated teacher with over a decade of experience. Months later, she resigned in frustration and despair when she realised that the Naplan-test education model was stopping her from doing the very thing she was best at: teaching individual children according to their needs and talents. Her groundbreaking essay 'Teaching Australia' in the February 2016 Griffith Review outlined her experiences and provoked a huge response from former and current teachers around the world.

Confrontingly accurately depiction of what it means to live as a teacher. Amidst all the joy and delight of teaching little minds is the ever insidious creep of a life and passion sucking bureaucracy that seems destined, if not determined, to break our education system one data point at a time.
