So many parents are buying the government line about standardised testing of students and programs like NAPLAN and MySchool, which somehow satisfy the 'consumer' in many people as they think they are getting results because of ranking and comparisons. But what these parents don't seem to realise is what those new ways of assessing students' skills are actually doing to their kids' ability to learn the crucial life skills and appreciation for learning that has thus far been the primary aim of teaching.

In this funny, heartfelt and passionate series of letters to the Mothers and Fathers of Australia, Gabbie Stroud makes a plea to all parents to understand the fundamental changes to the way their children are being taught, and the results of such a process on the development of future generations. She wants parents to understand their responsibility as primary educators and to appreciate the benefits to their kids of the life-long benefits that committed and dedicated teachers can bring to them.
