This is utter madness!
Another story tonight of a highly valuable high school science teacher from the regions resigning his job and preparing to leave New Zealand because he is split from his family. AND WE PAID HIM TO RELOCATE HERE!!!! This is utter madness. With the Minister refusing to give a reunification timeline for the vast majority of split families they are giving up hope. I predict we will be making border exceptions for STEM teachers and their families in a few months time because the great ones we have here gave up and left. I will be writing to both the the Minister of Immigration and the Minister of Education about this case tomorrow.
