    My view on NAPLAN testing for kids (or any kind of *across the board* testing) is that it is about as useful and worthwhile as gathering all the animals in the jungle and asking them to climb the same tree.

Our principal would be questioning it if we jumped to really high as for a no worksheet, developmental learning school, if our kids were better equipped to deal with unrealistic paper questions that involve very little real life problem solving and unrealistic situations he'd want to know how our days are spent in the classroom
    Yes. Not sure if it's this thread I mentioned it, but the area I work in is very disadvantaged and many schools would have the same ses, clientele, etc. but we are not compared with any other school in the area. These "like" schools is a bit of a joke. We are compared with isolated coastal schools and small inner city schools.
