It’s a self-imposed fear of change

Sick and tired of hearing colleagues tell me that they can’t do this or can’t do that in their teaching because of NSW Board of Studies-imposed requirements, yesterday I phoned our Liaison Officer and asked what the reality is.

She made three very interesting comments:

“The Board of Studies does not require a number to be used (in relation to assessment) until Year 12.”

“School protocols squash the reality of what the Board requires out of sight.”

“Grading is an end of course judgement.”

Now, how do I communciate this to my colleagues?
