Teachers asked to choose reps
Education Minister Chris Hipkins says it’s important teachers nominate candidates and vote for the new Teaching Council board.
Nominations for seven board members are now open, with the election to be held in March.
He says in the last election for the old Teachers Council there was only a 14 percent turnout.
That council was scrapped by the previous government and a new body was appointed to oversee the profession.
The new council will have six members appointed by the Education Minister as well as the seven elected members.
