A message, from New Zealand Post Primary Teachers' Association / Te Wehengarua (PPTA) president Robin Duff, to PPTA members working and living in Canterbury.
Dear PPTA Canterbury Members
The education renewal announcements made last Thursday by Minister of Education Hekia Parata and Secretary for Education Lesley Longstone have caused wide-spread confusion and anger across Canterbury.
PPTA has a preference for working with the Ministry and Government over education renewal plans in greater Christchurch, but the announcements made last Thursday 13th September bear no resemblance to what was discussed during the consultation phase.
PPTA has called on Minister Parata to apologise and asked the Ministry to explain their on-going mixed messages to the education sector.
