Education, Kelvin Smythe

A message from Kelvin Smythe

Dear reader,

What a weekend.

Both my computer went down and then my website became unworkable. (If the posting alert come out strangely: the cc not working, or some other matter, I would appreciate you getting in touch with me. I sent out this posting alert last night but only a few worked.)

I now have Windows 7 installed; Allan Alach has put up a new website – and is now associated with me on our new venture: www.networkonnet.wordpress.com

I am quite excited about it all.

Networkonnet and Allan and I are now ready to be there for the children of New Zealand and their teachers (as we see it) in the years ahead.

There are two postings up:

Who can teachers rely on? This posting sets the scene back in 1990, then has an article I wrote in 1990 in the first issue of Developmental Network Magazine. How did my predictions work out? Back then I was a pretty lone voice.

Ernie Buutveld delivers: When a person of his stature speaks out, we should all listen intently

He speaks for an informal cluster of Marlborough principal of his deep concern for the education directions of the government and of the importance of last Friday’s moot. As I report briefly in this posting it was a slanted shambles.

The informal cluster that was a regular event for the Marlborough principals concerned could, in the absence of NZPF being properly organised at the centre and it seems in regard to the moot in many districts, could be an idea for groupings of principals throughout New Zealand to organise against the government’s cluster proposals.

Why don’t you ring up some like-minded principals and meet to discuss, lobby, and act against those proposals?

All the very best,

Kelvin
