We need better funding for support staff as they are grossly underpaid for the time and effort that they put in. With more funding we are able to employ support staff to work with individual students and to assist with tasks that take a teachers attention away from educating the students.
Help support staff to help the teachers and students by giving them realistic funding to help them keep doing just that.
From Iain Lees Galloway (MP): I’m a Labour Party M.P. and I think that we need better funding for support staff because every child deserves a world-class education!
We support staff and children’s learning.
They deserve job security. They help at risk children function in a mainstream environment.
We need realistic funding from the government.
We need a fair deal!
Our children deserve the best!
Lincoln Heights School teaching community stands behind NZEI’s negotiations for better funding for our support staff. Our students deserve more. Teachers deserve and need the support provided in our busy classrooms. Support staff deserve an increase in their hourly wages. New Zealand Educators are teachers and support staff together as teams we are making a difference for the future. We vote give the support team more pay now. They are value for money.
They work above and beyond within schools.
