Labour education spokesman Chris Hipkins said yesterday that Ms Parata should go.

“Hekia has been a disaster as education minister, everything she has touched she has stuffed up – from class sizes and school closures to Novopay and charter schools.

“Her tenure as minister has been a series of blunders, botch-ups and bungles.”

But has he been promoted without anyone knowing?
