A staff member in our school has been getting correctly paid for each payround, until this week. She got payed 8 weeks pay extra, ($2000+) in her bank account. She is part time. Even if she repays it all tomorrow becuase she has received it as income, itaffects her benefit and she loses some of the benefit she would receive. Novapay says things are getting better, so why are new problems occurring?

There is only one priority here. GEOTECH REPORT.
The inhabitants of CHCH should be trying really hard to get this..
The implications will be far more wide ranging than just Schools..
The Govt will be deleting all manner of services without recourse..

One can't help wondering if two forces are not at work here. on the one hand Johnnie Bank's Chattel schools are looming (pay education means necessitating the closing of 'state schools'). On the other hand less schools means less teachers. Maybe Chattel schools will employ them, but of course, Charter schools don't need teachers. Stop this madness before it spreads.

I have taken everything the Govt has thrown at me since the quakes I have been every color of the rainbow for my land I have been through every change that EQC could put me through. Every law change they make to suit their BIG BUSINESS MATES. But now your pissing around with our kids and their education, This is not a CHCH QUAKE thing, this is a nation wide catastrophe!!!! Those people out of Christchurch that think it wont happen to me, Well watch this space we are only the Guinea Pigs. Anyone out side of Christchurch that are National supporters and have kids might want to look in to what they might do to your child's education. research Charter Schools and see if your child will benefit from this sort of schooling, look at your child's current teacher and see how fast they will lose their jobs as they wont be able to compete with teachers with no experience take over their jobs because they are happy to take minimum wage

I am deeply concerned for the children of Christchurch. I am a mother of 2 (living in Chch) - have the children of Chch not suffered enough over the last 2 years? Many of the children are psychologically scarred from the quakes, suffering from anxiety, depression and exhaustion. (My 7 year old has had two stints of councilling.) During this unstable time, school has been the only constant for many of the children. A safe place where they can escape the broken houses and stressed parents and just be a normal kid. The children are still suffering - now is not the time to upheave the school system in Christchurch. Nobody is listening to the children! The timing is wrong. What is the rush? Wait a couple of years and in the interim gather correct data, visit and consult the Chch schools. Then maybe we will get a school system that the majority will be happy with.

The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism is a 2007 book by Canadian author Naomi Klein, and is the basis of a 2009 documentary by the same name directed by Michael Winterbottom.
The book argues that the free market policies of Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman have risen to prominence in some countries because they were pushed through while the citizens were reacting to disasters or upheavals. It is implied that some man-made crises, such as the Falklands war, may have been created with the intention of pushing through these unpopular reforms in their wake.

We live in Canterbury and as many residence are feeling life is now changed dramatically for all of us.
what I am mostly annoyed about all this is the way this national government has the right to dictate and make irrational decisions for the people who live here without consultation or democratic input from the people who have gone through so much pain and now red tape formulated by govt and insurance blunders.
The school issue is a huge mistake, by the government agencies and ministers of education.
Dotcomm is an embarrassment to New Zealand people this government must have been aware of the secret spying on MR Dotcom, and illegally.
MR Key as Prime MInister, with no real policies to put the country back on its feet with growth and employment should resign as a government and have an early election for the sake of all New Zealanders and as a country in recession, with no real direction.
National as a govt do not care about the people and what they are saying, their time in office is almost over.
Come on New Zealand stand tall on your believes.

@Ian Cardin; the worrying factor is the Minister has been refering to these 'facts'as if they are correct and therefore basing her comments and communications to schools using these 'facts'. This is why schools are BAFFLED and ANGRY...the way the Ministry has communicated has not been in the spirit of negotiation or consultation. Hekia Parata can smile all she wants -I won't be voting National again!

Parata you are so well groomed into a National uncaring system you have no MANA what so ever to represent our tamariki (children) and future tamariki to suceed in this world....Resign please
