(Formerly known as Bring Shelley Sugrue Back) We, the undersigned, wish it to be known that we have exceedingly grave concerns regarding the cuts to the teaching staff at the college. From ECE to Primary to Secondary level. One of the reasons that we chose Dunedin College of Education was its reputation for having excellent teachers who are enthusiastic and inspiring. We are concerned that by focussing on the staff that are research based, the college are taking the heart out of the teaching team, who are after all, teaching the teachers of the future. Anyone can stand in front of an auditorium or classroom of students and recite what is written on a PowerPoint presentation. We need teachers who challenge us, excite us and make us think beyond the scope of simply passing our examinations. We need teachers like Shelley Sugrue, in ECE, who motivate us all to be the best teachers that we can be and we want her redundancy to be overturned and for her to be reinstated immediately. We need more Shelley’s, not less
