LISTEN: Community rallies behind striking teachers

Aug 15th, 2018 | By | Category: Latest News

Wellington’s railway station served as staging point for striking teachers and their supporters marching on Parliament today.

The primary and intermediate teachers are just one of the many groups of educators making their voices heard across on this national day of action.

Striking for the first time in two decades, the teachers are demanding better pay, retention of new teachers, and better support in classrooms.

NZEI rep Jude Clarke from Eastern Hutt School, says she feels the time is right, the community—especially parents are behind them.
