So am I. But they dont need it in primary school and they don’t need it before they can read, write and add up. Did you see the news last night? Turnbull banging on about how our kids are way down in the three Rs? I know why that happened. 1) the bright young things decided that kids should not be separated into different classes according to ability (we dont want them to think they are less, which is as stupid as that thing they used to have, called a “terminating pass” which is a fail…) 2) the bright young things decided that kids didnt need to know the basics, because they can get it all off the internet, use a keyboard, and a calculator. And what are they planning to do now? classify kids according to ability and get back to basics.
I knew we were in trouble when 25 years ago my partner’s kids came home from school with their spelling lists… and the teachers had misspelled words on the lists.
They dont need the tech until they have mastered the basics. end of.
