    Go 1! 😯 Go! 29! 😯

  2. Loota says:

    Now I’m a bit ignorant on this bit of procedure…what does the ‘lottery’ and ‘3 prizes’ actually refer to…could someone help me please? :)

  3. Trevor Mallard says:

    There is a ballot – to replace bills heard yesterday, there were three therefore three will be picked today.

  4. Idiot/Savant says:

    Loota: its a ballot for three member’s bills. At 12 today the Clerk (or their representative) will pick three numbers out of a hat, and those bills will go on the ballot.

    It may sound odd, but it beats queueing, which is how they doit in the UK.

  5. Loota says:

    Ahhhh OK thanks a lot for that guys.

  6. ghostwhowalksnz says:

    I dread to think whats in Douglas’s School Trustees bill.

    The right to levy compulsory school fees , or run the school under a private contract, for state schools

  7. Spud says:

    👿 I wish Douglas would butt out of education, it’s not like he or his party are even popular and yet he can reign terror on us all! 👿

  8. Idiot/Savant says:

    ghostwhowalks: Nope. Making school boards, rather than the Ministry of Education, the employer for teachers – an attempt to break the PPTA.

    I’ve covered the bill in “In the Ballot” here

  9. StephenR says:

    GWW: Something to do with amending the Education Act 1989 to make school boards of trustees (rather than the government) responsible for employing and paying teachers. (ripped this description off a few blogs)

  10. StephenR says:

    ….like NRT’s blog 😀

  11. James Caygill says:

    Well if there’s three slots to fill I say:

    “Go 29, 36, and 38″

  12. Spud says:

    Go 1, 11 and 29! 😀 😀 😀

  13. Idiot/Savant says:

    Education (Board of Trustee Freedom) Amendment Bill (Roger Douglas)
    Military Manoeuvres Act Repeal Bill (Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi)
    Employment Relations (Probationary Period Repeal) Amendment Bill (Carmel Sepuloni)

    Bad, harmless, good.

  14. ghostwhowalksnz says:

    The integrated schools are obviously the employer rather than DED, but their teachers still have the standard pay scale.
    Seems like the Trustees have their hands full being the principals employer

  15. ghostwhowalksnz says:

    The winners are ….arrrgh

  16. Nicola Wood says:

    The market forces seem to be working for Roger Douglas.

  17. stephensmikm says:


    Shame , I doubt any of these Bills will become law…even Singh’s bill to repeal a WWI Act won’t because any govt thinks its nice to know that it can do that sort of thing..

  18. Hilary says:

    According to John Hattie, NZ is second in the world for the similarities between schools, ie disparaties between schools are comparatively narrow and teaching and curriculum much the same wherever students are. The Douglas Bill would be a good way to widen disparaties and inequality.

    I don’t think many school boards would like the extra work of employing all staff, as employing the principal and support staff are already big responsibilties.

  19. Rory McCourt says:

    Please, can someone tell me why Roger Douglas’ bills keep getting drawn?? It’s ridiculous! How many so far? He’s either very lucky, or as Nicola says…he has THE force behind him…

  20. Big Bruv says:

    Sir Rogers bill is a great idea, if you are going to give school boards the power you may as well let them hire the teachers as well.

    Hell, they may even then be able to pay the good ones more and get rid of the bad ones.

    Oh…hang on, I forgot, for you guys Education is all about the unions and teachers, the kids are just the product you have to work with, the fact that so many fail is not important to you is it.

  21. Spud says:

    And we all know which side… 👿

  22. Spud says:

    😯 B ig B ruv’s back! 😮
