A possible solution to the problem of teacher unions

Earlier I suggested that de-registration could be a tempting way to sort out the teacher unions. I’ve thought about this and that may be a step too far.

I think I have come up with a more elegant solution.

the government could use anti-monopoly provisions in the law  to break up the unions from their monopoly position of representing education workers.

At present there is a single union for principals, a single union for secondary school teachers and a single union for primary school teachers.

I would think that teacher representation could be better achieved with a little bit of competition in the market place.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
