The NZ Principals’ Federation is upset that someone from the Ministry of Education has called them out for the state of our education system. But check out what their spokesman said in his latest missive about the issue:
‘The problem we have in New Zealand,’ says Simpson, ‘is not an educational achievement issue but an equity issue,’ he said.
‘The Secretary has correctly identified equity as an issue the country must urgently address, but has picked the wrong solution,’ says Simpson. ‘Dismantling a high performing education system will not put less money in the pockets of the richest and more in the pockets of the poorest,’ he said.
If that doesn’t tell you about the ideological bent of these muppets then nothing will.
Nothing short of pure socialist ideology. This has no place in our education system…the NZPF has now revealed itself as a highly political mouthpiece for socialism and the Labour party.
