Crossroads :
Authorised by John Dixon, General Secretary, NSW Teachers Federation, 23-33 Mary Street, Surry Hills 2010. Denis Fitzgerald was President of the NSW Teachers Federation from 1995-1997, and was awarded Life Membership of the union in 2009. Paper presented at 2017 NSW Teachers Federation Annual Conference. NSW is at the crossroads regarding assessment practices in schools. "Too many teachers and too many parents are now reporting that schooling is changing - narrowing, tightening, worsening. And this is across schools and all systems. It appears that the testing and data bombora has possibly reached a critical mass and has begun to somewhat corrode the life and richness that the best of schooling has provided to children for generations." -- p. 5 References and readings p. 21-22.
