Good to see that the Greens presented to Parliament today a 37,000 signature petition expressing concern about the Government’s National Standards policy.
‘The depth of concern about National Standards shows the Government needs to reflect on the wisdom of ramming them through without a trial,’ Green Party Education Spokesperson Catherine Delahunty said. Ms Delahunty received the petition along with Labour MP Trevor Mallard on the steps of Parliament this morning.
I wish I’d seen it doing the rounds as I definitely would have signed it. I hope the Select Committee use the opportunity to understand and address the concerns of the parents, teachers, and others in the education sector.
