LTT01: Do it for your Grandkids!

In this episode of Lefty Teachers Talking Teaching our guest-John, Matt Smedley (@SmedBoule), tells us how our children can best outsmart NAPLAN as if it is a thing that matters. He also points out some problems with the test in general. Pete (@mr_van_W) doesn’t have much of an opinion about it really.

Pete enjoyed the controversy of another article in the SMH this week, except this one didn’t suck – we all just took it a little too personally.
