Policies the Ministry of Education continue to support and roll out in schools are based on weak research, poor process and less that transparent motives. Our government should be looking to do good without doing harm. Creating league tables, introducing charter schools, underfunding kohanga reo and introducing flawed pay systems all undermine a state education system that is ranked 5th in the world. Graham Henry had a 83% success rate as an All Black coach and is hailed as an international success story. Our education system has an 83+% success rate and we are a failing system? We all want to support students to achieve success in learning. Labeling schools and students and undermining teachers are not strategies conducive to improving outcomes, just as they are not in rugby. Creating winners is about support, collaboration and utilizing expertise to improve coaches' abilities to get the best from their players. In education this expertise is found in Finland.
