I could not believe this quote from our shadow education minister Vicki Dunne when I read it in the Canberra Times this morning:
“We need less of kids going out and finding things out for themselves. We need more inculcation of knowledge.”
(Unfortunately I can’t find an online link)
So, don’t bother teaching kids how to research or learn things from the world, just sit them in a classroom where they can rote learn from a book.
She goes on to say that teachers are to blame for this travesty of kids learning.
And I thought the federal libs were bad!
