From The Australian:

A sample exam paper for Year 12 students claimed as fact that ­Israel has persecuted Arabs by demolishing their homes ­because “they don’t follow the Jewish religion”.

The Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation last night agreed to recall all copies of the practice ­assessment task meant for Health and Human Development students, following a complaint from a prominent Jewish school in Melbourne.

The paper, part of the council’s 2019 package of school-­assessed coursework tasks, known as SACs, that are provided to schools for a fee, contains questions and answers, including one asking students to demonstrate how religious discrimination affects mental health and wellbeing.

According to the sample ­answer provided: “An example of an individual being persecuted for their religion could be the Arab families living in Israel who practise the Islam religion rather than the Jewish religion. Including unlawful demolition of homes and forced displacement and detainment of these families.” It claims that “when a person is discriminated against … it could push a person to become more dogmatic in following their ­religion, possibly leading to ­extremism”.
Before the paper was recalled, it was defended:
The council, a professional body representing health and physical education teachers, initially defended the document.

“We make sure that for the ­answers we provided, there would be evidence for them,” said professional learning manager Bernie Holland, adding SACs were written by four expert teachers and reviewed by two others.
This is the real problem.

"Expert teachers" are so brainwashed by media lies about Israel that they didn't even bother to fact-check something that they felt was obviously true. They think that Israel just randomly persecutes Israeli Arabs and demolishes their homes because they aren't Jewish.

These lies then get passed on by these ignorant "expert teachers" to their students, who learn to hate Israel early in life.

Imagine how bad the "non-expert teachers" are!

In this case, the sample test was created by the Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation which creates the Health curriculum for Australian schools. Their latest newsletter shows that they consider "social justice" to be part of their educational mandate in teaching about health and physical education.

This may be where the problem starts.
