Meanwhile the union fights National Standards

There is a drug problem in our primary schools:

There are three times more drug incidents than ones involving alcohol at primary and intermediate schools.

Ministry of Education figures obtained under the Official Information Act reveal that 659 students were involved in drug, booze or smoking incidents in primary and intermediate schools last year, down from 696 in 2009. Some of the children were as young as 7.

Auckland Primary Principals Association president Terry Hewetson said the trend had changed over the years, with children as young as 11 taking drugs to school rather than booze.

Meanwhile the union is busy fighting National Standards while 20% of kids are failing. Looks like the NZEI has got its priorities all ass backwards.
