During Hekia Parata’s interview on Q+A today, Corrin Dann asks “Will National go to a full performance pay scheme in the future?”
Hekia answers (at 11.12 of video) “We already have very strong consensus from the teacher unions as well as the profession, they are on the working group, recommending the design features for this. We are very focussed on getting this implemented from 2015 and fully implemented by 2017″
Is she refusing to answer the question posted there, and actually continuing to talk about the new ‘super’ roles, or did she really just imply the unions are on board with performance pay? Because those are two very different things.
So, because she wasn’t clear, I need to check…
NZEI? PPTA? NZPF? What are your positions on performance pay?
Because there is a loud voice from teachers that they do NOT want this. And with good reason backed by much research.
I want to know exactly where the unions stand.
Is Hekia avoiding, evading, stretching facts, fibbing, or telling the truth?
We really do need to know.
