PPTA’s history gifted to prime minister

“Our latest book to John Key is the history of the PPTA. It is a reminder that secondary teachers have a powerful and long-term commitment to a fair and equal public education system,” says PPTA vice president Doug Clark.

“In contrast, governments come and go and history shows they are often more interested in their own electoral goals than meeting educational needs and the charter school experiment is a case in point. ,” he said.

”The government rips funding out of low-decile schools through the quarterly funding policy but has no problem finding money so the ACT party can experiment with kids’ education.”

In the spirit of the season PPTA continues to help John Key build up a collection of reading by gifting him a book on each of the 12 working days until Christmas. ENDS
