HIGH schools with a high proportion of students from migrant families dominate the top 10 performers in the national literacy and numeracy tests.
An analysis by The Sun-Herald of top performers in the year 9 NAPLAN tests shows that not only do selective high schools top Higher School Certificate results, they are topping the basic skills tests in reading, writing, spelling, punctuation, grammar and numeracy.
More than 85 per cent of students at seven of the 10 top achievers in the HSC come from homes where a language other than English is spoken. All seven schools are also in the top 10 achievers in NAPLAN test results.
The data is based on information provided on the federal government’s My School website, which was launched on Friday.
It shows 97 per cent of students at James Ruse Agricultural High School, which has topped every NAPLAN test and HSC results for more than a decade, are from non-English-speaking backgrounds.
Now… Let’s compare the literacy and numeracy skills of those with Language Backgrounds Other Than English (LBOTE) with some home grown patriotic Aussies who have no problems bad mouthing immigrants:
Um, we call you racists because…:
(Note: If you were wondering why so often we categorise racism with Islamaphobia, you only need to read a few of these to understand why).
It is extremely doubtful that Matty has ever met a real Arab or a real Muslim. Nonetheless, he longs for the days when he thought Arabs flew around on magic carpets and lived in Egypt with camels. Perhaps watching Aladdin is the closest he’s ever come to meeting an arab – and let’s not forget how Westernised Disney’s Aladdin was, and how American his voice was!
How sad Matt would be to discover Aladdin marrying a 10 year old or fighting in Afghanistan as a terrorist.
Maybe if he met an Arab Muslim living in Australia, and found out that the guy wasn’t a child molester or a terrorist he might just change his mind.
This is the ‘speak English’ debate in a nutshell. Nearly every halfwit trumpeting the ‘speak English or fuck off’ line can’t spell or construct a grammatically accurate sentence. This was one post that was just too hard to ignore. Get your red pens ready!
“(W)ell (I) know you cunts have her of meeee (sic) big kinc (sic) one yer (sic) thats (sic) me aha (sic) esh (sic) (.)”
First person to decode this gem and make head or tail of it gets a ride in a VY ute with a Southern Cross sticker on the back.
Melissa has no problems with anybody at all. But then she goes on to tell us how she’s got problems with some people. Irony? Mel, you’re getting your nails done. You’re paying for the nail attendance. You aren’t paying for conversation. Some nail salons might offer conversation as an extra charge, some give it to you for free. But I personally find it boring when a hairdresser tries to small talk me about my day and what I do for a living etc. It’s just shallow time-passing. So I have no problem if the person attending to my appearance is happily chatting to somebody they work with – a happy nail therapist is a good nail therapist, right?
Luke then takes out his frustration at being a check out chick by paying out the accents of the very people he is serving. I wonder if Coles head office is aware that Luke doesn’t like serving Asians. Would they be interested in knowing?
Finally Michael appears and expresses the frustration that comes from having to ride public transport and line up in dole queues by outlining his anger at people who aren’t speaking to him speaking another language. His inadequacy obviously extends to the idea that anybody talking near him is obviously talking about him.
What these three dead shits need to realise is that while there are a handful of our population who can’t speak English well, these people are generally new arrivals/1st generation migrants. All second generation migrants can speak English, as they’ve gone through our school system which installs ESL (English as a Second Language) programs as compulsory for NESB (Non English Speaking Background) students.
Get your diaries ready, as our two favourite racist entities try to organise a bunch of braindead fucks together to publicly display their intolerance. You’d think it would be easy, right? But it seems that although there are thousands of racists in Australia, most of them are spineless dopes who prefer to play keyboard warriors online.
How do we know these two events will be epic failures? Well, firstly – take a look at the (combined) numbers:
946 not attending
805 ignored the invitation altogether
And of those combined 76 participants, we can look at previous examples of events like these, and how the real number of attendees will look more like a quarter of that.
We look forward to reading about how these fools are embarrassed in public, again.
The rant is unintelligent enough, but this once again begs the question: how does immigration ruin Australian culture? How do non-white people prevent us from going to the beach, eating meat pies, watching the cricket, drinking beer, wearing bikinis or having BBQs?
When are these people going to realise that not only is our culture nearly completely made up of the cultural contributions of immigrants, but that our culture isn’t even remotely threatened when a non-white refuses a beer, or wears a scarf on their head, or doesn’t eat meat?
Take a look at this idiot. Nobody has stopped him from growing a bikie beard, wearing a woman-beater singlet, growing a beer belly and wearing hobo gloves. He’s pretty comfortable, yet whinging like a fucking sissy.
