The NZSTA is supposed to represent its members – School Boards of Trustees. Instead they have become little more than a conduit of Minister Tolley’s National Standards propaganda. Tolley was full or praise for President Lorraine Kerr at the recent NZSTA conference – what a surprise! Meanwhile the members are not so happy that are being represented by a group pandering to the government with little regard to Schools they they pretend to represent and who pay an annual subscription to have them do so.
Now some proverbial chickens have come home to roost with the conference failing to attract enough delegates to consider their business and vote on remits. Congratulations Mrs Kerr and friends you have effectively ended the School Trustees Association
