80 per cent not enough

FUNDING only 80 per cent of qualified staff is not good enough says NZEI.

The claim was made by teachers union NZEI in response to Government cuts of $400 million to ECE.

In February, teachers union NZEI presented a petition with 62,000 signatures to MPs, calling for the cuts to be reversed and for the Government to invest 1 per cent of GDP on ECE.

NZEI spokeswoman Hayley Whitaker said centres had already closed as a result of the cuts and more were under threat.

NZ Herald has more.
