Expectation of Standards

Not met

The society and environment teacher at the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School asked Year 10 students to pretend they were a terrorist planning a chemical or biological attack on ''an unsuspecting Australian community''.

''Your goal is to kill the MOST innocent civilians in order to get your message across,'' the assignment said.

Funny thing, and maybe its nothing but, in the story they mention the name of a students in the class, her mother, the principle, the State Schools president, but not the teacher…. could it be they fear the possibility of profiling?

Principal Terry Martino said students were reminded that the teacher was not promoting terrorism and that if they chose not to complete the assignment they wouldn't be disadvantaged.
