What does the issue of pay mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
Our budgets don’t always stretch and we often use our own money to pay for food etc for our tamariki – I would rather go without than see my community miss out.
What will it take to fix pay for kindergarten teachers?
Fair pay that reflects the growing costs of living – if budgets can’t change I need an income that has room to share.
When we fix pay for kindergarten teachers, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
