Book Launch: The “Little Black Book” with Andrew Bolt, Mark Lopez and Kevin Donnelly

John Roskam from the Melbourne’s Institute of Public Affairs has just sent out an email highlighting an upcoming event or rather, book launch.

'The Little Black School Book' with Andrew Bolt, Mark Lopez and Kevin Donnelly

A sensational new book, born out of classroom reality, is set to rock education practice to its very foundations by telling students how to get ‘As' by exploiting their teachers' biases. Rather than complain, this Machiavellian study guide … shows students how to exploit teacher bias and shortfalls in teacher quality.
This is all-good and fine, just two problems.

Firstly, I know I will be out of town on the date, which is disappointing, and secondly, while the goal of the book is a noble one, students would be well advised to learn the ‘language mechanics’ of English at the outset that is, before attempting to ‘exploit teacher bias.’
