A principal emails my recent posts about Charter Schools. As the principal has said in other correspondence, “I am just a passionate educator who wants to make a real, true difference for New Zealand students.”
Here is the email to discuss.
I am a principal in a state school and would kill to lead a charter school – have tons of ideas as I have often struggled with the way we are meant to do things for our learners!
The unions are making it a case of “guilty before proven innocent” in an effort to scare teachers and parents off – seems to be working as the negative hits the press far more than the positive!
No silver bullet … they are right there, there are a number of social issues that need addressing.
A chance worth taking for kids…damn right 100%
The video I posted yesterday is well worth watching again so that you can understand the philosophical battle between the unions and everyone else.
