I really wonder if those judging the award sat in on a class or two with these teachers…
What is/are the criteria for declaring that a teacher is one of ‘excellence’?

The point is, it is well known that it is far easier to teach kids in well-established schools that draw from middle-class/wealthy areas (higher SES). Plus, all of the schools where these winners teach have the advantage of having been around since 1960s/1970s, when lots of resources were made available to schools, and the clear advantages of this resourcing have remained.

Take a look at Namadgi, KSS, Harrison, Amaroo, and any other recently-built school. They are all state of the art schools which want for nothing.

…except for some actual material aside from bogan tradies’ kids upon which to practice that art.

Noting they all teach in schools established before self-government . . . and most located in inner suburbs. Therefore, they have already had a couple of free kicks. Now let’s see the awards for teachers in schools that had no resources or culture dating from at least the Whitlam era.

What?
