Look at the section labelled ‘impartial’. If EDUCANZ frames the new teacher code of conduct in that way, will we be allowed to speak out when we disagree with government policy? Attend protests? Even write to a newspaper or an MP to voice concerns?
I was under the impression New Zealand was a democracy. Ooh, would I even be allowed to imply that it’s not if this was my code of conduct?
And what would happen to me if I did something ‘they’ decided was out of line? And who is ‘they’?
So many questions.
