As well as having Monique Poirier I will host Alwyn Poole for a guest post every second week. He has been in Education since 1991 and, as a leader of the Villa Education Trust has been involved in challenging the system philosophically and through having Charter Schools.
He declares no political bias and although championing free speech and a range of freedoms – holds fast to a Christian faith perspective that put ACT outside his voting range due to their euthanasia support.
He has three children – a Auckland fire-fighter, a PhD student, and a Chemical Engineer living in Memphis who worked for the Trump life saving Regeneron before moving south to look after Alwyn’s first grand-child while daughter in law – Carolina – works for Cummins.
Alwyn promises to be thoughtful and polemic every fortnight.
