Back in December 2011 John Banks announced that Onehunga High School is a charter school.
This was a surprise to Onehunga High School, it is not a charter school and neither is Bairds Road Intermediate.
We thought John, our Associate Minister of Education, might have taken the time to research this model and find out a bit more over Christmas ... but it seems not .....

Having been made Associate Minister of Education, John Banks immediately demonstrates how au fait he is with the portfolio by declaring that Onehunga High, a good ole state school, is a charter school. News to us John and probably to the board of trustees at said school.
BTW "Poor John" is a rather rude Shakespearean term but appropriate somehow.
