On two occasions in question time today the Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth mistreated words I had used in the past. Today he claimed that I had said that MySchool should be shut down. I have said no such thing. I said the NAPLAN raw data should not be published on the MySchool website, and that is an entirely different matter to closing down the website. Secondly, he repeated the false statement that I want to sack one in seven teachers. The federal government does not employ any teachers, so it was a completely mendacious and perfidious statement.
