Educators are hitting back at the Government's plan to slash jobs in the sector's governing body, saying no good will come from it.

The Education Ministry has proposed axing more than 550 full-time roles. A plan which results in the net loss of 565 jobs has been presented to staff, representing a 12% cut to the ministry's workforce, the Public Service Association said.

But Kate Gainsford from the Secondary Principals' Council told Breakfast this morning: "The impact is pretty much entirely negative as far as we can see at the moment.

"It's negative in terms of the families who are destabilised by those job losses — but also to whole communities," she added.

Arihia Stirling, principal of Te Kura Māori o Ngā Tapuwae in Auckland's Māngere East, agreed.
