Good news - No robot marking for NAPLAN essays.  

Read the statement from Education Council here.

On the first day of December last year an unprecedented meeting took place.  For the first time, parent associations, teachers unions and Catholic and state principals united to consider a question that could have a irreversible negative impact on student education and achievement in NSW and Australia.  Unanimously, they agreed to take their objection of the  proposed robot-marking of NAPLAN essays to Minister Stokes.  Minister Stokes heard the concerns and announced in the media that there would be no robot marking in NSW.  On Thursday last week, the Education Council released a statement to inform that robot-marking would not go ahead until there was more research and testing.  

This is a win for students in all schools! - thanks to your parent associations, teacher unions and principal associations!
