Whakamana kaiako, whakamana tumuaki
Teachers play a vital role in our schools and the conditions for teachers are the conditions for our children’s learning. Industrial action is a last resort. However, teachers are being driven from the profession or working in circumstances that mean they cannot deliver the high-quality education to our tamariki they would like to. What are the key issues? -Improved support for tamariki -More staff to support learning -Better recognition for the work primary teachers and principals do -Pay rates that will attract and retain teachers Thanks for showing your support By signing this message to Minister for Education Jan Tinetti, and local MPs around the country, you are showing your support for the teaching profession, and for the best possible learning environment for our tamariki. Thank you for your support.
