All in a name

The changing face of Australia by stealth

We hear our political elite tell us how Australia leads the world in multiculturalism. Yes, we are the envy of all nations for our integration of sworn misfits and societal harmony. Never is the word ‘apartheid’ uttered. And that’s what it is—government sponsored apartheid by paying groups to remain separate— in ghettoes causing no-go zones for authorities and all other Australians. See the progress and regress.

NGUYEN has overtaken Smith this year as the most popular surname of students sitting the HSC. Joshua is the most common boys name while Jessica was the most popular girls name in this year’s cohort of 76,732 students studying for exams in October.

Nguyen revealed as the most common name among HSC students

There are 548 Nguyens compared to 494 last year, and 478 Smiths this year, dropping from 505 sitting last year’s exams.

Boys are more likely to study harder maths courses while more girls study high level English.

It is the first time Nguyen has been the most common surname since authorities began publishing the most common names of students sitting the exam in 2010.

English, which is a compulsory subject, was the most populated followed by maths was the second most popular subject followed by biology and business studies.

Boys were more likely to do harder maths courses, comprising 64 per cent of the tricky mathematics Extension 2 cohort. Boys also made up 76 per cent of the physics cohort.

Students are encouraged to do their best and focus.

Girls were more likely to study biology or general maths — while they beat the boys when it comes to high level humanities subjects. Girls comprise 72 per cent of the English Extension 2 course and 64 per cent of History Extension.

While there are 506 boys studying automotive subject, there are just 24 girls. Similarly in electrotechnology there are just 12 girls the cohort of 470 students.

The exams commence on Thursday October 18.

Education Minister Rob Stokes told students to focus on revision in the lead up to the exams.

“You’ve worked hard, you’ve been guided by excellent teachers, now is the time to review, relax, exercise and focus on this final task ahead,” he said.

“While this is a significant milestone in your young lives, these exams will not define you. So work hard, do your best, but don’t place too much pressure on yourselves, at the end of the day, it’s just an exam.”

    From my experiences working with various “new Australians” they are much more determined that their children are well educated than the average Australian born spanning back a long time in history.

    One Chinese factory worker and his wife operated a commercial cleaning business at night yet he grabbed every opportunity to do overtime at the factory. Their son was at Sydney Boys High School, a public opportunity school of private school level of education.

    It is a well known fact that the Australian education system is below par on a world rating. Students are tainted by useless, and in some cases harmful, subjects and to say we have excellent teachers is a real attempt to pull the wool over our eyes. Our universities are a leftist shambles. And to top it off that foolish giant ego, Malcolm Turnbull, claimed that we were the worlds leading multicultural country. Multi ethnic we most certainly are and we are heading toward Multicultural, which is a different way to say Tribal.

      Albert you might recall the Abbott Government “back to basics in education” plan?

      They promised to maintain Gonski education grants Labor agreed to provide to state public schools for 2013/14 (Abbott Government from September 2013) and for the forward estimate years thereafter (usually 4) and after that no guarantee, but in between time negotiate back to basics with state and territory governments.

      Cunning Labor quietly extended the Gonski funding period to 10-years.

      However, the main point I want to make is that they soon learnt that teachers, particularly younger teachers, were not equipped to teach the basics of reading, writing and arithmetics. A re-training programme was essential before the revolution could begin.

      Australia lost a lot when Mansion was installed as PM in September 2015.

        From http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-18/students-lowest-atar-scores-teaching-degree-offers-secret-report/10200666

        Students who leave high school with the lowest scores — some close to zero — are being offered places in teaching degrees at universities, a secret report has found.
        Key points:

        In NSW and ACT in 2015, school leavers who scored in bottom 50 per cent made up half of all teaching degree offers
        Figures contained in confidential report obtained by the ABC
        Report’s co-author says it’s “worrying that offers were being made to some students”

        The explosive figures are contained in a confidential report obtained by the ABC that university bosses ordered to be suppressed.

        It shows some prospective teaching students had an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) that was often as low as zero to 19 — far below the Federal Government’s official data.

        These figures, which have never been publicly reported by universities, show that in NSW and the ACT in 2015, students who scored in the bottom 50 per cent of school leavers made up half of all those offered places in teaching degrees.

        There were 28 offers made to students scoring an ATAR of 0-19, 29 offers to those scoring 20-29, and 73 offers to students with an ATAR of 30-39.

        ATAR is used in all states except Queensland.

        The report’s author, retired professor John Mack, has taken the extraordinary decision to release the figures to the ABC after the University of Sydney demanded the report be destroyed.

        “It was clearly not in the interest of the universities to make this data available,” Professor Mack said.

        “What it shows is that overall the general quality of applicants has gone down.

        Thank you.

        Your post confirms the worst fears of many Australians that children are not being provided with the best possible education. Despite the pretence of more funding such as the so called Gonski education grants to public schools. Teachers Union should be ashamed of themselves for promoting education and Gonski.

        It is easier to fool the people who are not well enough educated to pass judgement and analyse what they are told. And to lure them onto welfare and dependence on government.

        And therefore easier for corrupt globalist politicians to manipulate and ignore the Australian Constitutional Law in favour of implementing UN Treaties and agendas.

        The rot started with Whitlam Labor in the 1970s.

        Another example of why the globalists oppose Tony Abbott and his colleagues, and leaders overseas who are like minded.

        And as Christopher Monckton warned when he told us to watch PM Abbott’s back.

        Both sides of the political fence have too many traitors selling Australia out and pretending to represent the people who elected them in good faith.

        Enough of them, they have to go, the next federal election must be a protest vote against both majors.

    To claim that Nguyen is now the most common name is racial profiling and will further lead to the stereotypical view that Asians ? are better at everything.

    This is an appalling gaffe by the relevant department or ? minister for racial exclusiveness, oops, sorry meant to say inclusiveness.

    ??? Cheers

    Generally speaking, migrant Asians have a different cultural mindset to laidback Aussies, especially where education is concerned. They push their kids to get good study results. We let our kids set their own pace and levels of motivation. Sport is more important than academic achievements, it seems. When the rotten unions mugged the education system our standards went due south. The results speak for themselves. Will get even worse when the socialists get full control after the 2019 election.

    I’d take Nugyen over anything Islamic all day long.
