What does the issue of pay mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
I want recognition for the extra responsibility that I take in as a head teacher. With such a small gap between top tier teachers and head teachers salary there is no incentive for teachers to take that step up into these leadership roles.
What will it take to fix pay for kindergarten teachers?
A clear gap between top tier teachers salary and that of head teachers to reflect the massive difference in the level of responsibility in these roles.
When we fix pay for kindergarten teachers, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
I won’t regret the decision to take on a leadership roles and tamariki will benefit from experienced teachers stepping up into these roles.
