League Tables Discussed at Politics in the Pub

Tuesday September 8, 2009

Greens Member of the NSW Legislative Council, John Kaye, and Trevor Cobbold, National Convenor of Save Our Schools, addressed Politics in the Pub in Sydney on Friday, 4 September, on “School League Tables – Success or Disaster?”

Trevor Cobbold’s presentation outlined government deception and sophistry on the introduction of league tables, why league tables are an unreliable indicator of school quality, how league tables harm education and how they lead to social segregation in schools. It also shows how so-called ‘like-school’ comparisons fail to compare like with like.
