Looking for a job? 28 January 2011
The title reads 'Looking for a job? A potential employer sits at his desk about to interview two young men for a job. One is dressed smartly and holds his 'Cambridge Certificate' for which he has studied 'Calculus, economic theory, Mandarin, quantum physics, stats, world history and Latin while the other who is dressed in a tshirt and baseball cap holds an 'NCEA Certificate' and has studied finger painting, self-esteem, outdoor pursuits, Kapahaka, the Treaty, role-playing, and save the whales'. The employer is perplexed. Context - While 'NCEA' is still controversial the head of Auckland Grammar is testing the credibility of NCEA by preferring the Cambridge University to NCEA for all senior pupils except 'weaker' pupils in year 11 who will do NCEA English and maths. Wellington Girls' College principal and Secondary Principals' Council chairwoman Julia Davidson endorses NCEA and along with Kate Gainsford, president of the Post-Primary Teachers' Association is critical of Education Minister Anne Tolley for not taking a stronger stance against John Morris the principal of Auckland Grammar And the shool's board for its 'brazen attack on the credibility of the NCEA'.
