Gabbie Stroud on Australia’s education system
Readings Hawthorn — 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122
Gabbie Stroud’s groundbreaking essay ‘Teaching Australia’ in the February 2016 Griffith Review outlined her experiences of Naplan and provoked a huge response from former and current teachers around the world. That essay lifted the lid on a scandal that is yet to properly break – that our education system is unfair to our children and destroying their teachers.
In Teacher, a powerful memoir inspired by her original essay, Stroud tells the full story: how she came to teaching, what makes a great teacher, what our kids need from their teachers, and what it was that finally broke her.
