(!) False equivalence on charter schools.  That Auckland Grammar teaches alternative curricula does not necessarily mean it is a good idea.  That charter schools have not chosen to teach alternative curricula does not necessarily mean the law is correct in allowing alternative curricula.  That one teacher not registered with EDUCANZ is suitable for the role does not necessarily mean that negotiating each individual contract with the Crown on case by case basis is better than a EDUCANZ registration requirement:
