Hypocrisy Alert

Oh this is hilarious. The NZ Principal’s Federation calling for the school system to be immune from political interference.

School principals, teachers and trustee groups will meet on Saturday with the aim of making some parts of the school system immune to political interference.

They want to agree on the areas of schooling that they feel politicians should not meddle with.

The Principals Federation, which organised the meeting, says it hopes the groups can identify core principles of education.

It expects any consensus from the meeting will carry a lot of weight and says Governments would be unwise to ignore it.

This is the same group that has run a long standing political attack against this government, and also they are associated with the NZEI which is one of many unions registered to lobby politically in the referendum and in the general election.

Their call might be listened to if they practiced what they preached. But they are teachers and they all have the do as I say not as I do mentality.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
