The Education Minister's being congratulated for sacking the board of Moerewa School.
A commissioner will today take over the running of the school after the Board of Trustees was accused of welcoming back senior students, despite being told to shut down a unit for them.
PPTA president Robin Duff says it's wrong for primary schools to believe they can adequately provide education to students older than year 9.
"It's largely a clash between, sort of, generalist teaching which of course is more primary-focused versus specialist teachers, which are the secondary focus."
Mr Duff says he's as quick to compliment positive action, as he is to criticise a minister.
Commissioner Mike Eru has been appointed to run the school and former board chair Midge Palmer was told one kaumatua was planning to block the school's entrance, and not allow the Commissioner in.
However he Mr Palmer says that's unlikely to happen.
"I'm not aware of it going to take place, nor am I aware that there'll be any such protest at the school, and there's no signs of any protest whatsoever being gathered at the front of the school."
Mr Palmer says he holds no animosity towards the Commissioner and he's keen to meet him this afternoon.
