A couple of months ago a newspaper quoted a concerned parent who was unhappy with national standards. They were in fact an NZEI employee.
Now earlier this month, we had another concerned parent attack national standards. A Steve O’Connor in the ODT.
Now I may be wrong, but I reckon he is the same Steve O’Connor who is on Grassroots Labour. Nothing wrong with that, but when you write op eds attacking the Government, you and the newspaper should disclose political affiliations.
I also guess Mr O’Connor, is the same one who worked for Clare Curran.
It makes you wonder how many of these concerned parents and citizens always quoted by the media, have strong party affiliations and involvement they they never disclose.
