Secondary teachers welcome the Tomorrow’s Schools taskforce report and are excited to see bold and fresh thinking about the education system.
PPTA president Jack Boyle says, “The fresh approach to the challenges we’re facing has put a spring in our step at the end of a difficult year.”
“The principles that underpin the report are sound and we’re pleased that the government will take the time to get the detail right. We expect to be intimately engaged in that process.”
“We support many aspects of the report, and are especially interested in working with the government to develop the hub concept. Teachers believe this could be an important tool to achieve equity within and across communities,” Jack says.
“Taking the responsibility for employment off the plates of boards of trustees may well resolve many of the systemic issues PPTA often deals with.”
