Australian students at risk of radicalisation at 20 Sydney schools

Immigration to Australia started with the Aborigines who were then followed by the British. From 1901 onwards Australia controlled immigration with the Immigration Restriction Act which was known colloquially as the White Australia Policy. British migrants until after World War two were the preferred choice of migrant for Australia.  During the Second World War, Prime Minister John Curtin said, “This country shall remain forever the home of the descendants of those people who came here in peace in order to establish in the South Seas an outpost of the British race.”

Since 1945, more than 7 million people have settled in Australia. From the late 1970s, there was a significant increase in immigration from Asian and other non-European countries…

In the decades since, Australia has maintained largescale multi-ethnic immigration. Australia’s current Migration Program allows people from any country to apply to migrate to Australia, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, culture, religion, or language, provided that they meet the criteria set out in law.

Out of the many different immigrant groups to move to Australia only one type of immigrant and their descendants has been linked to radicalisation in Australian schools. While Australia was right to remove the discrimination based on nationality and ethnicity they made a serious error of judgement making it illegal to discriminate on the basis of religion and culture since Islam is 80% a political ideology and Muslim cultural values are at odds with Western values of equal rights for women and homosexuals and a democratic system of government. Islam is also the only “religion” that is linked to radicalisation in Western countries which is an inconvenient truth for many.We simply do not see people radicalised by any other religion or culture in this way.

Taxpayers money goes towards running public schools in the UK, yet those schools have basically converted to run under full sharia regulations.

Teachers at the school in the centre of the Trojan horse scandal are intimidated by their leadership while management have failed to combat extremisim, a damning report has revealed.

Park View Academy in Birmingham, the alleged target of a takeover plot by Muslim hardliners, has also been accused of failing to warn its pupils about conservative ideals. Read more »

Public school philosophy vs private school philosophy

It is good to know there is one teacher in the world that believes kids shouldn’t get something for nothing. 

Dorval was a teacher at Ross Sheppard High School and was reprimanded for insubordination, and not following the school’s grading policy. He was suspended, and later fired after handing out zeros to students for work that wasn’t handed in or tests that weren’t taken.

Bloody scary there is such a thing as a grading policy that means a teacher can’t assign a zero mark for work that’s never been seen or where the kid hasn’t even bothered to turn up for the test.  The really interesting part of this story is that Mr Dorval got reemployed straight away… in the private schooling system.

The headmaster of Tempo School says he had been looking for an advanced physics teacher, which is what Dorval taught at Ross Sheppard. The private school also says marking is left up to the teachers, and its students would expect to receive zeros if they didn’t complete their work.

It got me thinking… how many New Zealand kids get marks for doing nothing?  And is there a growing divide between the expectations that private schools place on their students compared to those in the public sector?

One of my mates’ daughters is doing a forklift driving course so that she can bump up her NCEA credits… she has no intention ever to drive one but they are quick, easy credits.  It seems to me that getting marks for doing nothing must be part of the grand scheme in the New Zealand public system somewhere.
