We all know that teachers and principals are donkey deep with the Labour Party.
Here’s another example.
Farrar’s piece on¬†‘Tory charity’¬†reminded me that when John Key Launched his Food In Schools policy in 2007, it hit a snag.¬†The school he selected for a donation said no.¬†Wesley School Principal Rae Parkin said her kids¬†were just fine thanks:
“This is embarrassing. I don’t want to end up with parents thinking I’m putting something in place because I don’t think they can feed their children. They can feed them.”
Fast-foward to 2012, and Labour announces a food in schools programme.
And guess what?¬†Phil Goff¬†doesn’t have any trouble getting co-operation from Wesley School and Rae Parkin when it’s in support of a Labour policy….or using kids for political gain again.
