|An advocate for creative teaching|
Pat writes about the negative scenario that will result if National’s latest populist panacea of providing considerable money to appoint 'super' principals and 'super' teachers to ensure schools comply to government National Standards is put in place
Read what Pat has to say (he is one principal who is not afraid to confront the government neo-liberal policies).
Then read the following comment by Tom Parsons (Secondary Principals Association president).
Parsons writes that Pat is scaremongering and that ‘we’ should see the positive in the 'super' principal /teacher idea. He sees the idea as the best thing since the 1877 Education Act! He must be joking?
I am with Pat!
