Interesting article pointing to flaws in how the PISA tests measured "disorder and chaos" in classrooms, and flaws in how these results were amplified and exaggerated by traditional media in Australia. "The mainstream press have broadened the research findings to encompass not just 15 year old students in science classrooms, but ALL students (primary and secondary) across ALL subject areas... The mainstream press have cherry picked negative results to get a headline, ignoring such findings in the same ACER report that, for example." This again is why I point out that fake news existed in traditional media long before the current social media panic.
