Truth says Maori Party President may support partnership schools at Education Select Committee

I have written at Truth’s website details about support of the Maori party for charter schools at the Education Select Committee this morning.

At the education select committee mid morning today, a Dr Toby Curtis, who is chairman of the Iwi Education Authority will be presenting to the Science and Education select committee.

Accompanying him is none other than Pem Bird, the Maori Party President and Ngai Tahu elder, who will be arguing in favour of partnership schools. Bird, according to his biography on the Maori Party website is an educationalist, awarded a QSM for services to Maori Education in 2008, by the then Labour government.
Despite union wailing and carping partnership schools looks like it is now a done deal.

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.
