Wakeling: Teachers failing literacy and numeracy tests

Teachers failing literacy and numeracy tests
Reports today that 1 in 20 teachers fail basic literacy and numeracy tests make a mockery of Daniel Andrews’ promise to turn Victoria into the “Education State”.
How can parents have any faith in their children receiving a quality education when many teachers can’t even read, write and count at a basic level?
It is little wonder education standards in Victoria are falling when not even the teachers can read or count and the Andrews Government is only interested in teaching radical social agendas like the so-called “Safe Schools” program.
Daniel Andrews needs to stop pushing his divisive social agendas and get back to basic literacy and numeracy in our schools.
