Schools ban the phrase ‘sitting a test’ because some children might have to stand during assessments. New Australian rules mean children must ‘take’ an exam or test, instead of ‘sitting’ it. Educators argue some children could have a disability or ADHD. The words “maths” and “numbers” must also be referred to as “mathematics.”
Sure, we needed government rules on this. I hope the penalties for disobeying are really steep.
