Dumb Politicians Shouldn’t be Calling Teachers “Dumb”



I haven’t encountered too many dumb teachers, but I have come across plenty of dumb politicians:


THE Andrews Labor Government is intent on raising the bar for teachers in Victoria.

To say this is overdue is to put it mildly. It’s a no-brainer that if you put a thick teacher in front of kids, then they will not achieve.

But that is exactly what happens. Moreover, the cost of necessary remediation because of dumb teaching is high. Yes, it is your tax dollars we are talking about.

No matter. Teaching courses in Victoria set entry requirements for bottom feeders.

I am in my fourth decade of being a secondary teacher and I have seen academic standards decline in teachers.

To be blunt, they do not know enough about their subject.
