A new study has thrown a curveball into the academic slugfest between public and private schools.

    If Naplan is the only "clear" indicator or measure of education and a school's performance then the only seriously clear conclusions that can be drawn is that the education system is in bigger trouble than anyone could imagine. An educator with that attitude in the classroom would want to be teaching a bunch of high achievers as anyone else might just be considered sub-standard, and this person would most definitely not want their pay to be tied to this measure. Aren't we lucky that the world is a multivariate place and not a single variate place with Naplan at its core? I look forward to seeing what other great research can be undertaken that draws such useful and mind blowing conclusions.
