Please everyone share this – tell people!
Ordinary Kiwis have no idea!
According to the government’s plans for charter schools:
- They can PROFIT from our kids’ schooling (Money paid to them can be spent however they like and kept as profit by the company running the school)
- They can teach them how they want (goodbye National Curriculum, despite being such a world renowned document)
- And they can do all of that in secret (no ombudsman and no Official Information Act will apply) (update – some ombudsman powers have been agreed but still no OIA)
- They are allowed to have NO BOT (goodbye community involvement)
- They are allowed to have staff with NO TRAINING (yes, that is bound to raise achievement)
- …and for all that they will be allowed to make a PROFIT from the taxes our government GIVES them to run the bloody school.
It is the biggest scandal ever.
