Remove Chris Hipkins as minister of education immediately.

Chris Hipkins has shown repeatedly through the media that he is unwilling to negotiate with teachers in good faith. He continues to slander  teachers in the media and seeks to turn public opinion away from the true issues at hand in the current negotiations. He twists the facts of the negotiation demands and is determined to make teachers out to be unreasonable and greedy. His behaviour and his comments in the media are disgusting and demeaning to teachers and the teaching profession. He clearly does not value teachers or their contribution to Aotearoa as a society. His continued efforts to discredit the claims of teachers through twisting the facts does nothing but drive more teachers out of the profession and makes those who remain feel worthless and unvalued - opinions which will undoubtedly then be picked up by both parents and students.

He is not fit to lead education in Aotearoa.

He does not deserve to stand as the head of education in our country and we ask hereby that Jacinda Ardern remove him immediately as minister of education.
