PPTA hate choice – Public waking up

Without a Partnership school having even opened yet and with only five contracted the public are already swinging towards that option with a poll showing 45% support already.

The PPTA are terrified and President Angela Roberts is not seeing the obvious – or even asking the questions:

Roberts said teachers saw the schools as a threat to public education.

“Every time a child moves out of a public school into a charter school, they take funding, they take staffing, and that school which still has kids in it is poorer. So the teachers in a public school are left to try and do an even better job with even less.” 

Moving to a Partnership school will be a choice.

Why would anyone choose that if their local school is world class?

But – if parents believe that their allocated state school is not working for their child the PPTA say they are not allowed a choice. Could their patch protection be more obvious and odious?

Do professional teachers really pay subs to these people? Note Roberts claims to speak for all teachers.
