What does the issue of staff to student ratios mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
1:10 ratios mean Kaiako are unable to meet the needs of all tamariki in this current diverse climate.
What will it take to fix staff to student ratios?
Better ratios and more specialized professionals to assist with working with our tamariki with higher needs.
When we fix staff to student ratios, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
More time to spend with tamariki, implementing meaningful learning experiences, and supporting their wellbeing and emotional intelligence. Deepening relationships between families/whānau/aiga and Kaiako, so we are able to foster their aspirations for their child.
