Join us for an evening of conversation with author of the national bestseller, Teacher. Gabbie’s new book, Dear Parents, is a passionate call to arms for all parents to understand their role as their children’s lifelong teachers, showing how they can help their kids’ educators and schools achieve the best outcomes for the next generation.
So many Australian parents are buying the government line about standardised testing of students through programs like NAPLAN and My School, which make them think they are getting results because of rankings and comparisons. But they don’t seem to realise that these new forms of assessment are actually negatively affecting our kids’ ability to gain the crucial life skills and appreciation for learning that have been, and should be, the main aim of teaching.
Dear Parents is a funny, heartfelt and impassioned series of letters to the mothers, fathers and caregivers of Australia, making a plea to all parents to understand the fundamental changes to the way their children are being taught, and the results of this process on the development of future generations. Written by Gabbie Stroud, author of the national bestseller Teacher, Stroud wants parents to recognise their responsibility as their children’s primary educators and to appreciate the lifelong benefits that committed and dedicated school teachers can bring to their kids.
