This article was about how Australia is falling behind other countries in education.

There’s one area where Australians are falling behind and that could affect the whole country’s education. When tests from around the world are compared Australia doesn’t score as high as some other places. In reading and in science, Australia is sitting at seventh place. In maths there are twelve places where kids perform better. That might not sound bad the big worry is that Australia seems to be slipping behind. Earlier this year a report put out by this guy; David Gonski. He said education in Australia isn’t as good as it should be. One big problem kids who go to schools in wealthy areas tend to do better than kids at disadvantaged schools. Gonski wanted to make this fairer by giving more money to the schools that need it the most. Well, now the Prime Minister has responded to the report. While she’s not doing everything Gonski suggested, she’s announced some big changes to the way schools are funded. And she says there’ll be more money for kids that need extra help.The PM’s changes will cost about six and a half billion dollars. Some say 13 years is too long to wait for a better education system. Still, many say it’s a huge step in the right direction.

I now understand that Australia is falling behind other countries in education. I also understand that we are aiming to get better and hope that to be in 13 years.

What are other country’s doing different to Australia?

Bexley a little toddler and her 16 year old brother Brick were walking their small fluffy dog Maxie through their local park. Maxie was a very energetic dog that jumped around like a kangaroo. Instead of Brick walking Maxie, Maxie walked Brick.

They would always pass the polluted lily pond that smelt profusely. They could just see the lake.  “Aghhh!” screamed someone in the distance. “What that?” questioned Bexley. “It’s probably nothing” They could see the lily pond clearly now and what they saw shocked them. Maxie barked furiously. Brick rubbed his eyes just in case it was a dream.

This article was about how different kids have different feelings as shown by the happiness survey.

Nearly two thirds of kids say that they feel happy lots of the time, and the things most likely to make them feel that way are your family, friends, being outside in nature, and playing sport. But the survey also shows that feeling down is pretty common too. About three out of four kids feel sad, scared or worried at least some of the time, and the biggest thing bothering them is the future.They also often worry about issues with friends and family, and bullying. In addition almost two thirds of kids aged 8 to 12 worry about their body, and about a quarter would like to change it.There are ways you can get over being sad. One of the easiest is having a chat with a friend or family member. Girls are more likely than boys to talk to their friends.

I understand that if this is you, it’s worth trying to speak up, because the numbers tell us that if you do you’re likely to be happier. I  also understand that we all have different feelings that we should all respect.

Is there another big component that people who feel sad go through?
