Petition to the Prime Minister, Minister of Education and Minister of Finance
To the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Minister of Education Chris Hipkins, and Minister of Finance Grant Robertson:
We ask that you honour your pre-election promise to restore early childhood education funding, deliver on 100% qualified teachers, and reduce teacher to child ratios.
Every child must have access to high quality early childhood education.
In the lead-up to Election 2017, we asked MPs and candidates to commit to early childhood education.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Minister of Education Chris Hipkins, and Minister of Finance Grant Robertson were among those who signed a pledge to restore funding to ECE, reduce ratios and group sizes, and restore the goal of 100% qualified teachers.
Now we’re asking them to honour this election promise for tamariki.
Sign the petition below to recommend they act now, and please share it with your friends and whānau.
We can get this right, together - right now! No trade-offs and no excuses.
Every child is worth it.
