Is the HSC Process Responsible for our lack of Innovation as a Nation

 
In terms of the proficiency of our students, according to the Global Innovation Index, Australia ranks 20th in the world, which is pretty distressing for a country like Australia. This has led observers and experts to question whether the Higher School Certificate (HSC) process is responsible for our lack of Innovation as a nation, and hence the relatively low ranking.

Has the HSC testing process outlived its usefulness in terms of being the right way for us to gauge the proficiency of Australia’s students? Strategic thinking and growth expert Richard Kelly discusses this contentious issue with Stephen Cenatiempo.
