An Australian Education

Australian TeacherHere’s a message that the Queensland, Australia Maroochydore High School staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone answering machine. This is the actual answering machine message for the school. This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsible for their children’s absences and missing homework.
The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children’s failing grades changed to passing grades – even though those children were absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not complete enough school work to pass their classes. Which makes me wonder why Canadian schools can’t have the same attitude. Click the play button below to listen
