Raising their sights, Ctd

Union flunky  and PPTA National Office staffer Michael Stevenson jumped on my earlier post, as is usual he is opposing Charter Schools without any eveidence.

Here are some real stats he might like to comment on.

In 2003 Maori were 19.1% behind non-Maori in Level 2 NCEA. They are now 23.1% behind. 46.1% of Maori are not achieving Level 2 (23% of non-Maori).

Keep in mind – that is for the students getting through to that level.

In 2010 34.3% of Maori were not getting even getting basic numeracy or literacy (as opposed to 20% of non-Maori – scandal in itself.

So what are the PPTA protecting again? Why do they endorse these differentials?

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.
