Papers for discussion at the PPTA Annual conference 2015

PPTA’s 2015 Annual conference will be held 29 Sept – 1 Oct in Wellington.
These conference papers have been produced by the PPTA Executive to inform debate around a number of secondary education issues.
This paper examines why teacher support for the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) has struggled to rise beyond a "fragile consensus" since its 2002 inception and advocates major changes in government policies to enable the NCEA to fullful its potential.
This paper examines the extent of the failure of the charter school experiment to provide an improved alternative to the public education system in New Zealand.
This paper examines the impact of new models of initial teacher education (ITE) that make greater demands on schools. It considers the effects on teacher workload and problems with new funding models, and seeks to find ways that partnerships between schools and teacher education providers can be better managed and teachers better recognised for their contribution.
This paper provides a report of PPTA's actions opposing the government's scrapping of the Teachers Council and replacing it with a non-representative and overtly political body, EDUCANZ.
