Why did Labour hide its education policy announcement?

So why would you release your education policy when there are huge stories around? There was no Labour press conference, no big announcement.

I’ll tell you why. Labour didn’t want it to get coverage.

Labour knows they have stolen most of National Standards,?but have removed the part where schools have to report to the Ministry. In other words – the NZEI has ordered them to make sure there is no chance of journalists creating league tables.

This means that any information would be kept secret within the school.

This policy is purely for the unions, so they can hide bad teachers and stop parents comparing schools.

In fact, it is the opposite of what John Armstrong advised them to do in the Herald at the weekend.

Make no mistake, Labour are nothing but puppets for the NZEI.

And as for Sue Moroney, their education spokesperson?

A disaster, who is now stealing lines from Anne Tolley.?Compare Moroney’s words on the Labour announcement on their webpage today:

“Under Labour every child will have the opportunity to achieve to their full potential”

To what Anne Tolley has been saying in almost every speech and press release for two years:

“This Government is determined to give every single young New Zealander the opportunity to reach their potential.”

Moroney has been busted. Thank god she will?never be education minister.
