NZ Today: #109 – Another Ardern ‘Achievement’ – Truancy Rates

So readers can see how dramatic the change in attendance has been for school students, I’ve graphed the official data.

    He finishes his post with:

    The proportion of students chronically absent has gone from 6% in 2017 to 14% today. That is 1 in 7 students are missing over 60 days of schooling a year.

    And for Maori students it is 1 in 4 are chronically absent. No amount of co-governance, working groups or authorities will impact Maori disadvantage as much as improving the attendance rate at school.

    Let me say this again:

    No amount of co-governance, working groups or authorities will impact Maori disadvantage as much as improving the attendance rate at school.

    Indeed, as history has shown for centuries education is the true path to poverty removal and improvement in living standards. Indeed, education is why so many Asian families have achieved so much. Look for example at, Singapore where education has been a major factor in individual and national prosperity. Singapore is an example as well of a country with several official languages, but where English is the main medium of information exchange.

    The Ardern regime’s educational ‘achievements’ are appalling and the situation re truancy is absolutely disgusting.
