A government review into the NSW education system is more about ideology than improving student outcomes, warn the state’s teachers.

    I worry that this review is politically motivated and I wouldn't trust Baird or ACARA to design a functional, quality education system... But I wouldn't be alone in arguing that the HSC is unecessarily difficult, placing a huge workload on teachers and students for a qualification that will be largely ignored by the university's anyhow. I feel frustrated that other states don't have to force their. students through the pain of an ultra-high stakes finishing exam.

    I certainly wouldn't mind having the opportunity to give students deep learning experiences that prepare them for the 21st century if it came at the expense of them memorizing essays...
