The NZEI has predictably come out against the decision regarding teacher registration for Charter Schools. Ian Leckie had this to say:
NZEI president Ian Leckie said Ms Parata’s quality teaching agenda was in “tatters”.
“We believe every child deserves success at school with the help and support of a qualified and registered professional.”
Mr Leckie said registering teachers ensured a robust and high-performing profession that gave the public confidence that teachers were competent and safe.
“It is unethical and unfair to let children be guinea pigs in a charter school experiment where anyone could be put in front of them in the classroom.”
Presumably he is referring to these kinds of “registered” teachers being put in front of children in the classroom:
And that is just back to May this year!
of course the Teachers Council also supports name suppression for pedo teachers and secrecy in their delivberations…but all those teachers are registered so should be ok to put before the children in a classroom.
