The funny thing is, that Agriculture is not a formal subject until High School Year 7 in NSW and it's only offered at some, not all schools.
In primary school, you MIGHT have farmers, food industry people come in to do some talks or your school MIGHT have a vegetable patch.
-you MIGHT have computer lessons
-you MIGHT have music lessons
-there are lots of MIGHTs besides Maths and English.
Obviously something has to be fixed up, right?
Since we value passing tests so dearly, scrap NAPLAN & make passing a 'History, Civics and Citizenship' test compulsory. It's atrocious for people to not know why and how Indigenous people are the way they are now, not knowing all of the National Anthem (and its' meanings), basic political processes, general news and current affairs AND still allowed to be admitted into High School, yet alone TAFE/University/Workplace and last but not least SOCIETY.
I was shocked for this 13 year old to think 'Plains' as in "Boundless Plains to share" was 'Planes' ie Aeroplanes since 'the government would prefer people to come here by plane, rather than by boat (Asylum Seekers)' (Not a dumb kid, quite bright)
Overheard some person who thought Kevin Rudd was literally knifed by Julia Gillard
