The teachers of today WANT and STRIVE to teach. Though unfortunately the ACER LANTITE TESTING implemented by the Australian Government is taking all our money and destroying our future. Limited to three tests for both literacy and numeracy, the test consists of a range of irrelevant and conflictingly hard questions that are currently giving all studying teachers one big headache.  

How is it fair to judge a future teachers performance based on two tests? It's highly impractical, inhumane, unfair and pathetic. From the same people who brought to you NAPLAN testing, this is what current studying teachers are having to go through. Did I mention, the tests are $185 to complete!

The passing benchmark is changed each round depending on the cohort undertaking the tests. We don't receive our tests back or any feedback apart from an absurd graph stating if we have passed or not. Does that sound fair to you? 

Many current teachers studying or about to graduate have been offered teaching positions ALREADY, yet can't accept due to not passing the lantite testing. How about we stick to a probation period and judge the teachers performance and interaction with the children, rather their capability to complete a test. 

Please sign this petition and help Australia's future teachers! We don't deserve this.
