What does the issue of pay mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
I think all teachers, including relievers, should get equal pay based on their experience. Relievers and permanent teachers should be paid based on their level [of experience], not drop down to relievers’ pay when they relieve at a different kindergarten or do extra hours at their own kindergarten.
What will it take to fix pay for kindergarten teachers?
Provide pay based on teacher’s levels not a relievers rate.
When we fix pay for kindergarten teachers, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
We will have more relievers available because they will be able to afford to live off the reliever’s wage.
