Via CNN, we are reminded of why the left think the right hate teachers – it’s because we don’t have quite the same view of them as they do. CNN: So in this town where the average income is $22,000 the average teacher is now making $76,000. What are the community members paying for? James… Continue reading Jaw Dropper of the Day
Another teacher refusing to do their job, even after horrific injuries resulted
Well, this one tops all. “Principal John Inger wouldn’t have had them back here unless he and the board were persuaded that [the girls] had moved on.” Mr Inger said the girls would “almost certainly be looking for a different school” if they did something like this again. What did they do that threatened that… Continue reading Another teacher refusing to do their job, even after horrific injuries resulted
Yet another school disinterested in doing it’s job
This makes me angry. Mr Petherick said he had assured Mr Hamilton the school was a safe place for his son. “We have spoken to all the individuals in this, and we believe that it is sorted.” Bullying was not a problem at his school. “Any bullying that happens here we deal with it. We… Continue reading Yet another school disinterested in doing it’s job
“How dare the government force us to selfishly push people away”
I was wathing 3 news last night. It was so nice to see the best funded sector in education complaining bitterly that they woudn’t retain their privileged position. Funny how the teacher’s union person interviewed made it very clear that the government’s actions were the direct cause of them raising fees (and all the bad stuff that causes) and… Continue reading “How dare the government force us to selfishly push people away”
The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as a liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty, especially as the sheep was a black one. Plainly the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of the… Continue reading Freedom

Been meaning to post this for a while. Quite an interesting video.
Oh, he’s done it again. When National ripped $400 million out of ECE funding, Education Minister Anne Tolley tried to pretend that it wouldn’t hurt anyone, and that it wouldn’t result in lower quality education or in parents having to pay higher fees to make up the shortfall. Bullshit: Indeed it is. National isn’t “ripping”… Continue reading ECE “Cuts”
How on Earth will Student’s Associations survive without their millions?
Looks like VSM is going through, so I thought I’d be helpful and use the OUSA budget (on their web site) as an example of where cost savings can be made. Let’s just go through the numbers, shall we? Administration Wow, $500,000 where does all that go? Staff wages and consultants mainly. Neither are needed… Continue reading How on Earth will Student’s Associations survive without their millions?
Get back to work, greedy teachers
Wow, a leading newspaper lashing the teacher’s unions. Secondary teachers’ union head Kate Gainsford wants today’s strike to be seen as being all about a Government that does not value teachers or education, and that is mucking her members about. There is a good reason she is doing that. Clothing its extravagant wage demands in… Continue reading Get back to work, greedy teachers
What’s really going on in ECE?
Last night, Campbell Live did a great job of repeating the nonsense thrown around by the left regarding National’s changes to Early Childhood Education policy. But they ignored the real problem: Labour’s idiotic policy. Take early childhood education. National inherited a loopy policy from Labour. That Government decided no one was fit to educate the… Continue reading What’s really going on in ECE?
