NAPLAN causes anxiety and wastes countless hours each year training students to pass tests. It has killed creativity and pits students and schools against each other. NAPLAN is behind the loss of play in the early years of education. It has narrowed the curriculum and brought about the introduction of the developmentally inappropriate curriculum currently being forced upon young children. Most teachers do NOT support NAPLAN. There are better ways to evaluate and support student learning. We wish for Australia to listen to experts like Pasi Sahlberg and follow in the footsteps of Finland and now New Zealand, giving teacher autonomy top priority. We ask that you scrap NAPLAN as it stands and look to creating policy that focuses on diversity, respect and equity.
