Greens Catherine Delahunty and Marama Davidson joined support staff at James Cook High, Manurewa.
So we’ve had a chance to see what teacher aides do, and we see just what a big job it is.
And we really want to support central funding for them, and better opportunities for learning for them, so that they can support schools.
And right now these schools can’t function without them, but we haven’t got enough and they’re not supported properly.
So the Greens are here to support that kaupapa today.
