Two spins, one story

In looking for some links to a completely different story, I came across two different headlines for exactly the same piece of news:

NSW students 'above average in all areas' (which goes on to say "over 90 per cent at, or over, the national minimum benchmarks")

Story quotes the State Education Minister:"It's just such a tribute to our teachers, to our principals and of course to our kids themselves. They've done brilliantly."


10pc of students fail to meet minimum literacy standards

and quotes the Federal Education Minister:"While it was very pleasing that 90 per cent of students met minimum standards, governments have to focus on making sure every Australian child succeeds at school."
