Huge public support for teachers. Parents know how important our mahi is, & that we can't keep people in teaching with current conditions. Govt has a mandate from the public to in bargaining this year

Got some great ideas about what should change about teaching? What do you think school should really be about? The ministry wants to hear from you

Secondary teaching should be a great profession that people are queuing up to join, but sadly, that's not happening. We want to turn that around, and this year we have the chance. That's why we're saying

Communities know what the challenges for teachers and schools are, and what we need to fix them. They want the best for their kids, and teachers do too - that's why this matters

It's also true that there are far fewer people choosing to be teachers now than in the past. It would be a long bow to claim that pay isn't part of the reason. And I think you're wrong abt CPI. Tchr paying 25% of income on housing in early 00s wld now be paying 45%

To fix the serious shortage of secondary teachers and recruit and keep great teachers, we have to address the relative value of teacher pay, writes PPTA President

Must listen interview on with about secondary teacher shortages, workload and valuing teachers. No minimisation of the problem by the Minister, so let's work together on shared solutions

We're about to re-launch our new, updated and re-named Anti-violence Tool Kit - the old one is here for one more week. Neither of them advocate arming teachers.

Thanks for the clarification Wendy. Great that you're interested Karen :-) Lots of challenging work in this space for PPTA, for eg. COOL progressing, with changes to the model from new govt

Mātauranga House even says as much... (Two of the three don't get a mention in the 'inspirational quote' on the front window)
