I just love the way Joe Key's all about the teaching staff now, after 12 months of giving them Hekia 'the Hammer' Parata to deal with. Then he gives his main motivation to get this blunder-fest resolved as..."I need them, (the teachers) to be onside as much as I can...? That's pretty self-serving and sounds like there's more round the corner for the Min. of Ed that teachers and principals are going to pissed off at. Let's hope not, National have blown all their political collateral in this sector. They're skating on pretty thin ice with teachers, parents, principals and the public in general as it is and keeping the Hammer as the face of the ministry may prove to more trouble than she's worth. Hoping Stephen Joyce can come up with effective practical measures to get the payroll back online....(just a footnote).....for those still clutching at straws.Is looking at the mistakes of the previous payroll company in any way going to help fix this fiasco in the immediate future? If it is,why didn't National think of reviewing Datacom's performance between 2008 and 2012 when they had the chance to?...Yeah right!
