Public tertiary education gives all New Zealanders the opportunity to develop skills, learn trades, and create knowledge which helps our families, communities and economy.
But Paul Goldsmith, the Minister for Tertiary Education, is trying to change the law to take public funds away from our universities, polytechs and wānanga and hand them to private companies who are more concerned with profit than providing quality education.
Together, let’s make sure tertiary education stays public, local and focused on learning.4,858 signatures
This would be the single biggest change to tertiary education funding in a generation. If enough of us speak out, then together we can stop it happening.
By pledging to support public tertiary education you will be adding your voice to the many others that want to keep tertiary education public, local, and focused on learning, not profit.
Tertiary education belongs to all of us. Now is the time to tell Paul Goldsmith you want it to stay that way.
Equal pay affects everyone: the recent uni grad just starting her first job, the mum who is taking a couple of years out of paid work to raise her children, to school support and social workers.
Treat Her Right is about all of us. We still need your voice, and as many voices as possible, so we make 2017 the year that equal pay became real.
Will you join with us to make this happen?8,345 signatures
- I support equal pay in every workplace.
- I want equal pay for women now.
Women work hard for the money, so let’s treat them right.
