Sack Them

Between 200 and 300 teachers from Invercargill and surrounds will boycott workshops aimed at preparing teachers for the introduction of National Standards.

Invercargill Primary Principals Association president Peter Hopwood said no teachers from the association’s 23 schools, including Catholic schools, from Bluff to Invercargill and rural areas bordering the city boundaries would attend either of two training workshops scheduled to be held in Invercargill next month.

Time to smash the teachers unions once and for all.

This is government policy, parents want it, National promised it. They should either turn up or be fired.
