Radical overhaul of schools – the details of what Hipkins plans


From RNZ Nine To Noon – from Chris Hipkins stacked review we get the report released late last week

The government’s independent task force has reviewed the school system finding it is underfunded, and not working for too many groups including Maori, Pasifika and disabled children.

It recommends the creation of a network of “Education Hubs”, covering around 125 schools each, run by government appointed directors.These hubs would take over boards’ responsibility for school property and finances, legal matters, and educational performance.

Kathryn Ryan talks through the detail of the major proposals with the chair of the independent task force, Bali Haque.

The proposals overturn the Lange Government’s reforms and cement the Education Ministry and the unions as the key determinants of the NZ education system. Some say it will lead to the continued decline of the NZ Education system.

Do not see how these proposals will resolve issues with poor outcomes for pupils and improve education for the many.
