Radio NZ reported:
Two Auckland charter schools should not be allowed to join the state system because they are little different to other schools in their area, the Educational Institute says.
In a submission to the Education Ministry, the primary teachers’ union said it strongly opposed the Villa Education Trust’s application to turn its schools in South Auckland and west Auckland into designated character schools.
The schools are among 11 that would shut at the end of the year unless the government allowed them to join the state system.
What a nasty vindictive move.
NZEI doesn’t like the principal of those schools, Alwyn Poole. So they are trying to get them closed down. This is despite the fact that kids at those schools are achieving way way better than in their previous schools.
