The Canberra Times informs us that the Department of Education has trimmed back its laundry list of “essential learning achievements” from 36 to 26.
“visualise, and create and use visualisations” has been given the arse, but “manage self and relationships” (they can teach that? really?) remains alongside less objectionable material as reading and writing.
20 Canberra schools are getting this forced down their throats next year and I would not be surprised if private sector enrollments were to rise off the back of it.
