Australian students have been ranked among the worst behaved

Australian students have been ranked among the worst behaved in the developed world. 

This coincides with the nation’s academic slide in literacy and numeracy. 

Dr Sue Thomson, director of educational monitoring at the Australian Council for Educational Research, says listening is a major problem. 

‘Our classrooms are generally quite noisy and destructive wherever they are,’ Dr. Thomson told Ross and John. 

As well as listening, the study also considers holidays, absent days and other distractions. 

Dr. Thomson says several principals she has spoken to are well aware of the problem. 

Students in Finland were ranked the most well behaved.
