What does the issue of pay mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
Head Teachers need more recognition/pay remuneration for the extra mahi that comes with the responsibility of being a Head Teacher. Increasing the difference in pay between a teacher and a Head Teacher would encourage more teachers to step into Leadership/Management roles, that a Head Teacher position offers.
What will it take to fix pay for kindergarten teachers?
An increase in Government funding.
When we fix pay for kindergarten teachers, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
More teachers staying in the ECE industry and not moving into other education sectors. Tamariki will benefit by teachers being valued for the work the do.
