It was my favourite of the lot, but it never ran. Don Brash wanted it to, but others thought no one would understand what PPTA was.
I replied that the media would ensure that they soon did!
I think this billboard would have created a firestorm, which the teacher unions surely deserve.
It would have thrown the spotlight on the real wreckers of the New Zealand education system: unions that for decades have quite deliberately destroyed the futures of thousands of children by insisting that they be exposed to useless, boring, uninspiring teachers.
Let’s hope the latter-day Nats can summon up the guts to deal to these Labour-protected losers – and pay good teachers the six-figure sums they deserve.
(They just might too, as depowering the PPTA would be hugely popular with parents, students, business, and anyone who cares about New Zealand’s future.)
