Despite it being widely publicised that none of the Charter Schools proposals in New Zealand are from “for profit” organisations Philip Harding says this to the ABC:
PHILIP HARDING: I think what’s really sickening about that money is that it’s going to go into organisations who are there to make a profit.
Why does the Principals’ union boss feel it is ok to lie? Would he accept this from his own students?
Teachers cannot really be happy to be being represented by these type of people and surely must call for the resignation of this man.
If he is not able to tell simple truths he has no grounds for further stances on the issue.
It should also be noted that: Philip Harding, President of the NZ Principals’ Federation makes a good income (profit) out of education through taxpayers funds.
