Submit your views on the Government’s update of New Zealand’s Education

Tuesday, November 3, 2015

If you have an interest in the future of New Zealand’s education system I’m encouraging you to submit your views on the Government’s update of New Zealand’s Education. The consultation process begins November 2 and runs until December 14.

The current Act is 26 years old and focusses heavily on administration and compliance so here’s an opportunity to redesign the Act to centre on student achievement in the 21st century.

Within its electorate boundaries Ilam has 33 schools so I hope members of our community will have their say during this consultation process so we may continue our local educational success.

Further information about the consultation and how to make submissions can be found at www.education.govt.nz/education-act-update.
