The NZEI is mounting a public campaign for their pay round. Despite media stories to the contrary they are already planning strike action for Term Two.
I have highlighted some of the more concerning aspects to their plans, including the¬†euphemistically¬†described “school based activities”.
Basically though they are opposed to every aspet of government policy, including national standards, charter schools and decisions in Christchurch. They believe it all to be part of a conspiracy they have called “Global Education Reform Movement” or GERM, which they oppose.
To make it clear it appears they are opposed to ANY reforms of education. At least they have put it all inn writing though which was nice of them.¬†
