PPTA members have given us the strongest indication yet that they want nothing to do with the undemocratic Educanz nominations and appointments process, says PPTA president Angela Roberts.
In a recent membership-wide ballot, 94.9% of those who participated voted in favour of a motion to not accept nomination or appointment to the Educanz council nor participate in the body’s consultation processes.
“Effectively, the ballot result means that anyone who puts their name forward for nomination or accepts an appointment won’t be in a position to claim to speak for secondary teachers,” she said.
“Members of Educanz must understand that they will serve the minister and the government of the day ‒ not the teaching profession.”
