    National can’t hide from school funding facts – Labour

    Wednesday, 8 March, 2017 – 13:16
    A frenzied series of announcements in recent weeks can’t hide the fact school buildings and classrooms have been run down during the tenure of the current National Government, says Labour’s Education spokesperson Chris Hipkins.

    “Analysis by Infometrics, commissioned by the NZEI and PPTA and released this afternoon, show school capital funding has decreased by 13.9 per cent under National. That’s why kids have been left in cold, mouldy, overcrowded classrooms.

    “The panicked announcements of new schools and classrooms should be seen for what it is – National playing catch up after eight years of neglect.

    “National’s failure to provide schools with adequate funding increases is also the reason why parents are being asked to stump up for more and more of the cost of their kids’ education.

    “School operational funding increased by two per cent during the tenure of the current National Government. By contrast it increased by over 20 per cent under Labour from 2002-2008.

    “In opposition Bill English and the National government decried the financial pressure on parents. Since they became government, they’ve made it even worse.

    “National can’t hide from the truth by spouting ‘alternative facts’ any longer. The real facts are clear, under National, schools just aren’t getting the funding they need to provide kids with the education they deserve,” says Chris Hipkins.

    Well, I suppose everything had to be cut so as to give tax cuts to the rich.

      Key ” And then we said that the money would go towards schools!! lol”

      Running down services is a prerequisite of every public servant so their new Minister can put forth a new package to save the day. Media complicity is a foregone necessity less they expose how governments need to be seen serving the people yet aren’t. Schools, pupils, citizens, all get jerk around from this ever present false bureaucracy.

      Take Trump, a president who is well advised, signing a new collective punishment declaration. Why? Who does he have to refund? Why would he distract by attacking the previous Pres? And open himself to an impeachment. Seems this is Trumps end game. i.e. what does the Vice President got him? Is collective punnishment an end run to change the justification for Abortion? i.e individual rights subsumedo he greater collective need? Is the only way out for Trump impeachment?

  2. Tories just chucking in a few dead cats and waiting until the medias honeymoon with Jacinda is over and they come back home.

      Honeymoon? Ardern been an MP for 10 years with a very public persona, she’s nothing new or exciting.
      The media are just desperate to try and make a “game” out of this year’s election.
      Media sucks, especially that shit for brains wanker, Duncan Donuts.

      • weka 2.1.1

        *snort*. But it was alright when it was Key and the shit for brains was Hoskings.

      • appleboy 2.1.2

        Oh so eloquent as ever. Just wait til wikileaks vault 8 release drags your stinking government out of power and weep when Ponytail John’s speaking fees drop rather dramatically. Ha. Can’t fucking wait – and there’s no way to spin your/their way out of what’s coming.

  3. “Honeymoon? Ardern English’s been an MP for10 years forever with a very public persona, she’s he’s nothing new or exciting.”
    QFT.

    I’m guessing that if you are using a national party poster (for satire obviously) – you should at least remove the “authorised by”
