One primary school educationalist I know, told me he always knew he wanted to be a teacher. His students call him by his Christian name. He is not only the teacher, he is their friend.

The teacher is proud of his own daughter, a top student who is at university and in the process of getting a degree so she too can become a teacher. At the age of 23 the lady will bring light to the dark side via her education. . We are truly blessed.


In the 1950's I suspect my teachers had similar ideals and beliefs. But it made no difference for those of us with learning difficulties who got left behind in favour of students …

I know the feeling, there is nothing sweeter than knowing something that the smart bastards have no idea about.

I worked in a Government department some time ago. The Government of the day had noble aspirations and the department worked effectively to stymie those aspirations as they were regarded as unworkable.


These days the departments seem to be literally infested with woke labour supporters who are in turn controlled by special interest groups who do not have the interests of the bulk of New Zealanders at heart. No matter what policies a Government decides and promulgates it will not see the light of day unless the public servants tasked with delivery are on board or you have a Steven Joyce type minister capable of changing people's attitudes. Ministers l;ike that are rare so we effectively have "government" by departme…

The whole point of the new world order is to make people dumb, and keep them dumb, the best way to do that is to teach the young nothing, that way they will not understand let alone ask awkward questions.

Totally agree with last posts. I am hoping some of the newer parties can change things and get some common sense into Government before it is TOO LATE!!!!

Someone has to have the guts to say it how it is and turn it around, but they will need massive support to overthrow a Maori takeover!!

Most parents want their children to be successful academically. To be successful, especially if they want to travel and work overseas, which most of them do in my experience, they need to have a good grasp of the basics.


To get work in the major capitals of the world they require a worthwhile degree or otherwise a skilled trade. So, really it is up to the parents to ensure they are properly educated. Learning Maori might be a " feel good" thing in New Zealand but it won't cut it in the wider world unfortunately. That is why Asian students come here to learn English.

What a disgrace all of our POLITICIANS have been for so long.

How can they stand there in parliament and claim they are working for the benefit of all NZ ers.

Back biting and childish cross table talk to try to make a personal point only shows their inepitude for the job , they were elected, 100% all of them to put forward the needs of their constituency,

So why are they not doing this for our cause ????? They are idiots any child can see through this, so WHY ARE WE PUTTING UP WITH THIS ???

WE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO VOTE THEM IN . i PERSONALLY DID NOT VOTE lABOUR BUT i DO NOT SEE ANY OTHER POLITICI…

bang on Tom......have you ever watched a session of Parliament.....my god its worse than any kindergarten.....the speaker (Duckman) controls the opposition to the point they don't exist...Luxon stands, reads his question, with no passion behind it, Ardern stands and replies with however the hell she likes, insults etc then sits, Luxon stands and politely asks another question - this goes on and on - these people are running the country and Luxon looks like a schoolboy explaining why he should even dare to ask questions.

The other politicians sit there like robots, such good little comrades to the cause....

Debate has ceased and the opposition party is dead in the water.....we are on our own out here....
