A split in the PPTA?

The Herald reports:

The case has caused some division within the union. The Herald understands the PPTA Onehunga High School branch approved a motion supporting the Teach First programme, and objecting to the PPTA’s legal action.

The branch chair could not be reached for comment, and principal Deidre Shea referred questions on Teach First to the ministry.

PPTA president Angela Roberts said she was aware of some concerns and could understand why some members felt the union had been “a bit heavy-handed”.

I suspect Onehunga High School is one of those schools that has Teach First graduates and has found them wonderful. It is no surprise they would be unhappy with the PPTA’s lawsuit.
