I bet she was registered, Ctd

The teacher union oppose Charter Schools because the legislation does not require compulsory registration of teachers. They argue that the kids are safer with registered teachers…like this one who tried to hire a gang member to bash her principal.

A teacher tried to hire a gang member to assault her principal because she was being hassled about lies she told to the school, a disciplinary hearing has found.

The high school teacher, whose name is suppressed, told a student she would “sort something out” for her if she arranged for her grandfather, who had gang connections, to confront the principal.

The teacher told a colleague she had arranged for the principal to be “capped”, which the colleague took to mean an injury to the knees.

As usual the Teachers’ Council has taken a ‘nothing to see here, move along’ approach:

Despite her “unprofessional” actions and “serious misconduct”, the Teachers’ Council has given the teacher permission to return to the classroom after a disciplinary hearing last month.

The disciplinary tribunal heard the teacher also fabricated grades for work not done by students, forged the head of department’s signature, and lied about what classes she had taught.

The teacher feared she was going to be fired and so hatched a plan for one of her students’ grandfathers to threaten the principal.

People do screw up and need new starts but PPTA/NZEI cannot protest Charter Schools on the basis of the integrity of the Teachers’ Council and the registration system.

 

The Teachers’ Council were not willing to sanction someone who had falsified grades, forged signatures, lied about classes taught and attempted to arrange to have the Principal assaulted. She wasn’t sanctioned as she was: “passionate about being a teacher and for financial reasons”.

    It’s about time the government did something to halt the rot and the rorting. Featherbedding and protectionism of incompetent and morally bereft teachers must stop. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd priority in education should be the students and “continuous improvement” not education sector unions prostituting better educational outcomes for students so the unions can protect their membership fee base.

    Be very interested to hear Helen Kelly’s excuses for why this so called “educator” deserves to be educating young, impressionable minds? The spin, lies and deceit would be almost Oscar material I bet…

    I would have thought a charge of conspiracy to commit GBH would have been a minimum starting point for the police. If I had told someone I had organised a hit on a school principal I would be bloody well locked up. I think someone needs to lay a complaint with the police. This woman should NOT be responsible for children.

    Surely the level of criminal charges she should be facing would result in her ineligibility to continue as a registered teacher? If there are no charges, why not? Another reason why the teachers’ registration council should be scrapped. Useless waste of time and money. However, as a teacher it is good to know that one get get away with fairly serious criminal activity without any repercussions. Could come useful someday…. Now where are those key ingredients in the science lab… pay has not been good with novo(no)pay… local gang number in speed dial.. (Oh wait, we’re supposed to be educating the youth..forgot about that!!!!!!!!!)

    Nothing new here.Parker the deputy head master, the child kiddie fiddler,from Kaitai,was and still is completely supported by the same union,who supports the reinstated Mafia type school teacher.Havn’t heard the talking pest from the union ,guy named Leckie saying anything about such events.Perhaps he is too busy putting the boot into the Nats for producing league tables.

    Time for Crusher Collins to take over Education as the wee princess from Porirua hasn’t got any gonads to sort out this bunch

      No; I’d rather that Tony “Soprano” Ryall took over education. There’s barely been a murmur from the health sector for four years, and that portfolio is normally a Ministers’ graveyard. Ryall would be a great choice when Key reshuffles in the New Year.

        Yes, isn’t the silence weird?

        No premature babies being pulled out of their cribs and flown elsewhere, to make headlines to get huge hospital set-up funding… No junior doctors starving in garrets, in between making terrible mistakes after 80 hours continuous duty… No rent-a-socialite heading a new Patients Who Need More Drugs committee…

        It’s quite unnerving. What’s he doing? He is a very bright, very able man, I grant you that. He speaks well, he is on to it, he seems genuinely competent.

        But when, in history, did that ever silence the medical sector? Why haven’t the drug companies manipulated his life so his teenage son has dropped out of school and his daughter is going out with a heroin dealer?

        Mystified.

          Biding time, waiting for the teachers to shut up so they can pounce.

          Or waiting for the election to see who can offer them the most.

    Another teacher charged in Auckland with kiddie fiddling.Just been reading it in NZ Herald.Name and school suppressed.Wonder why the school offenders get so much protection from unions,and Justice system.Where is NZEI on this latest scandal to hit the headlines.

    So it is acceptable by the union to have your Head master sorted by gangs.

    But showing a Tit by a former teacher is a no no.

    I thought the “Sisters” had all run of to new York with Aunty Helen.

    I was wrong.

    “A former teacher in Auckland, New Zealand has been
    deregistered after posing nude for Penthouse magazine.

    A teacher and model was
    investigated by the New Zealand Teachers Council (NZTC) after a member of the
    public complained her actions had brought the profession into disrepute.”

    Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal case #2012/26. She was charged by Police, for the attempts to arrange harm to her Principal, and received diversion. She gets to keep her registration. Compare to case 2011/07, where the poor woman loses her registration, but harms no-one, doesn’t involve students in trying to organise a “hit”; yet gets the whole weight of a bunch of victorian era ninnies, making salacious judgements and ending what sounds to have been an exemplary teaching career, potentially. I cant help it Im outraged by this latest decision, bending over backward for the “victim”

    Quote:She wasn’t sanctioned as she was: “passionate about being a teacher and for financial reasons”.
    Translation: “She’s a strong union supporter that doesn’t give a fuck about being a teacher but has connections and needs the money”
