The main argument against doing over twenty hour’s part-time work, particularly for those international students who want the restriction of part-time hours cancelled, is the ability for them to earn a reasonable income in order to support their study. It is unfair that local students have no limitation of their work time. In fact, international students should also have the same rights as local students. Significantly, international students who may have more financial burden, mainly come from developing countries to Australia which is a developed country.

Standardized testing seems to turn these schools into the ones only for testing. Another issue with standardized testing is that it does not fit every race ofstudents equally well.
