    Niall Clugston, The Latham Diaries were published prior to the Muldoon/Rudd book hence, at the time of writing, his assertion was correct.

    Niall Clugston, errors of fact or broken crystal balls?

    “All teachers up to and including principals and their directors should be appointed on about five-year contracts, after which they have to either renew their contract or find another. This system will allow those who can’t perform to filter out of the system.”

    Or more likely used by principals and directors to get rid of “trouble-makers”.
