Brand Key on Waatea news: “A National government will be a lot more demanding about educational standards, a lot more demanding about under-performance in schools, a lot more demanding on failing schools”
There is no ‘how we will fix things’ here, simply a statement of problems. If schools don’t perform would National cut their funding? How would they measure under-performance? What would they do with failing schools?
Classic Crosby/Textor. Another hit and run, an attempt to sow a vague discontent with the current government while offering no answers. Where is the real discussion of problems and how to fix them? Nowhere, because National has no intention of fixing them. The aim is simply to make the current government unpopular and waltz into power as the only alternative.
