The National Standards policy National is ramming through - or trying to, is a bloody crock! John Key has had to rescue the policy which is not fully understood or wanted by the teaching profession.
It's putting the cart before the horse, is using money taken off adult education, and insults teachers by claiming a third of them are bloody useless and shouldn't be teachers. Use the money to support teaching and teachers and to encourage more male teachers back into the teaching profession. Get some balance back into the teaching of our children and grandchildren.
Parents don't fully understand what National is trying to ram through. How can anybody support anything that National rams through? National standards are pretty low all round the traps!
