“In commanding public space and using one of the most traditionally masculinised expressions of popular music practice, she directly challenged the sorts of expectations many people have around gendered norms, particularly what women in their elder years look and sound like.
Not everyone gets to age on stage

Create! Hence: be”create”ive!
Thank you to Elaine Sander for this post share!Almost everyone has an inborn need to create; in most people this is thwarted and forgotten, and the drive is pushed into other activities that are less threatening, less difficult, and less rewarding. In some people, that need to create is transmuted into the need to destroy. ~Marcus Sedgwick

For my son who is ASD standardized testing was a way of showing his true capabilities. This was shown repeatedly via NAPLAN and ICAS testing. Getting good marks in school requires all sorts of skills like talking in class, doing presentations, and and working well in groups of kids where you have no choice about who is in your group. He got pretty average marks in his reports but was outstanding in standardized testing. He did great in his HSC and is now doing Engineering. There is a place for standardized testing as it shows your basic skills. There are no rules which say that teachers have to teach to the test or drill students. My kids have never been subjected to this. Teachers do need to make sure their students are reaching minimum standards.
No two pieces of a jigsaw puzzle are the same, even if some have the same shapes.
