Best reasons ever to appoint Catherine Isaac

The usual suspects are upset about the appointment of Catherine Isaac to a role overseeing the Charter Schools programme. But the best ever reason for actually appointing Catherine Isaac was provided by the head of the teacher’s union PPTA:

Mr Duff said the committee overseeing the trial was a “farce”, and Mr Banks was not interested in consultation with people in the sector.

One thing we have learned is that there is little point inconsulting with the feather-bedding teacher’s unions. It is a pointless exercise.

Listen to the full rant:

And following up that little tirade from Robin Duff is Catherine Delahunty, providing the best ever reason why Catherine Isaac is the best person for the job:

Delahunty said there had been no public discussion about what a charter school was.

“And then we get an appointment of somebody not from the education sector but entirely from the ideology of privatisation.

She certainly won’t be listening to the carping of the vested interests of the various teacher’s unions.

The government was hardly going to appoint equally political appointees from union hacks and flacks were they?
