Three gutless Maori, Labour MP’s

What gutless wonders these three Maori Labour MPs have shown themselves to be when it comes to standing up for Partnership schools and their Maori Whanau who benefit from them.

Kelvin Davis: I’ll resign

 

Peeni Henare

Peeni Henare: But my wife works at a Charter School

In 2015 Little labelled a decision by MPs Kelvin Davis and Peeni Henare to attend a $250-a-seat charter school fundraiser in Whangarei as a “misjudgement”.

He told the MPs it was his preference they didn’t attend, despite both having family connections to the school, but they attended against Little’s advice.

 

Willie Jackson: Just a change of name

Labour won’t close my charter school

In response to Education Minister Chris Hipkins’ press release yesterday where he made it clear that Partnership schools will be forced to close, Act leader David Seymour had this to say…

[…] “The Government has no clear alternative to Partnership Schools, they know that Maori and Pacific achievement is abysmal, a stain on the promise of opportunity for all, but they are so focused on helping the ‘sector,’ read unions, that they have forgotten about the kids.

The Maori Caucus are missing in action. They are intimately and personally involved in Kura Hourua. The stood indepently of the Labour list and yet are not accorded the mana they deserve in Labour if this decision is anything to go by.

“Today is a bleak day for the Government, who are more concerned with payback to their union backers than pursuing policies that work for the future of our children.
