Tougher Testing

It is being reported that the federal government has announced a proposal saying teaching applicants will have to pass interviews, aptitude tests and provide written statement on top of achieving the necessary tertiary admission scores.  Teaching students will also have to pass tests and score in the top 30% of literacy and numeracy benchmarks before they can graduate.

I am not sure how I feel about this. I understand the need to have committed teachers but sometimes people don’t perform well in exam like scenarios. The mark on a test may not always reflect someones teaching ability.

Yeah still not really sure about this but I thought it would make for interesting conversation.
