Don't do the surveys
The Representative Assembly, November 2003, decided "that teachers no longer participate in the government’s satisfaction survey."
There were no educational benefits for students from teachers participating in the survey last year. There were no questions about class size, resources to support learning, or the reductions of options and choices available to our students.
Last year, the minister used the surveys to claim that people are satisfied with her government’s initiatives in education.
