Secondary teachers vote for education reforms

Radio NZ reports:

80 per cent of PPTA members have agreed to include two new teaching roles into their collective employment contract. They’re a key part of the government’s $360 million policy, which will see the creation of communities of schools.

That’s very pleasing. There are many areas of education policy where the PPTA disagrees with the Government, but it is good to see them willing to work with the Government in an area where they do agree.

The reforms will be excellent for secondary teachers and principals. They will be able to earn $10,000 to $50,000 a year more by taking up roles where they share their skills with other schools and teachers.

The NZEI remains totally against their members getting paid more money!
