What does the issue of staff to student ratios mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
We have so many children with additional needs and with the ratio of 1 : 10 we struggle to meet the needs of all our tamariki. A lower ratio will mean we can spend more one on one time with all our tamariki, not just our tamariki with additional needs.
What will it take to fix staff to student ratios?
Lower the child : teacher ratio. More support for additional needs.
When we fix staff to student ratios, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
It will lessen the stress around whether we are meeting the needs of all our tamariki.
