Teachers should get a gold star

Teachers should get a gold star for hanging in there.

Falling standards should not be blamed on classroom leaders.

Teachers should take heart from the latest statistics on schooling in Victoria. In fact, they would do well to keep a copy of the Summary Statistics for Victorian Schools in their pockets so they can refer to it as a defence against criticism that they are to blame for the sky falling on the education system.
