Education (Protecting Teacher Title) Amendment Bill removes the ability of those who have not gained certain recognised teaching qualifications from using the title “teacher”.
A person who uses the title “teacher” such as Tabla Teacher, dance teacher and does not meet the criteria, will be liable for a $2000 fine.
The Attorney General (David Parker) ruled that this Bill unjustifiably violates the NZ Bill of Rights Act 1990.
The Education Council strongly opposed this Bill in its submission to select committee.

It was an amazing time at Pacifika Auckland 2018 with Hon. Simon Bridges Leader of the Opposition and National Party colleagues. Auckland has the biggest Pacific population in the world and it was good to see them celebrating diversity.
It was an absolute privilege to meet the former President Barack Obama last night at a dinner held in Auckland.
The President had great insights on world politics, transitioning from being the President to being a private citizen, on leadership and how any leader should have diverse inputs from the youth, women, men, ethnics and etc.
Overall, it was an amazing experience and that too a great learning experience, especially as an ambitious politician.

Another very good example why we are worried about relaxation of Bail Act being purposed by this New Zealand and Labour collation government.
Activities by National Party MP’s during last week. Joined Local MP David Bennett and number of concerned dairy owners to discuss the recent spate of increasingly violent robberies in Hamilton. Labour Government’s soft attitude toward crime is giving wrong signal to these criminals.
