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.
I don’t know about you, but I find this very worrying indeed. Not only are the Asians taking over our country with their blah blah language, but they are now wearing head scarves and imprisoning us for doing as they do. Not really sure what country this is happening in, nor if there is any suggestion of such inhumanity occurring in Australia, but I have a right to feel shit scared of it, because I am a stupid bogan.
Most of ‘them’ are criminals. ‘Most’? ‘Them’? ‘Criminals’?
‘They’ use a language barrier to get away with ‘these crimes’. Do they? “Sorry officer, I’m going to leave now, because I don’t speakie the Englie.”
‘They’ only live here because ‘they’re’ desperate?
OUR COUNTRY? OUR STREETS? Well firstly, it’s a country we stole from the Aboriginals, but it’s supposedly unAustralian taboo to remind people about this black armband view of history. And secondly, the country belongs to no single demographic – the country belongs to all Australians that pay taxes and/or vote.
OUR LANGUAGE? We no longer have the right to be bilingual? Paul wanders the streets, wondering what ‘these people’ are saying. He’s so vain that he believes that these people have any interest in talking about him. And even if they are – will they really have any influence in swaying the opinions of people who matter to him? Of course not. They have no mutual friends.
Make no mistake, people. This is pure xenophobic boganism. Claiming ownership of something that was stolen and inherited. Claiming a monopoly on public property in a democratic country. Fearing that all people who choose to speak their primary language with their friends are talking about him. Suggesting that all non-whites are criminals, and that they are getting away with crime because they speak more than language.
