Or, in other words. Schools that are not achieving will suffer fewer and fewer pupil attendance, which in turn will force the government to close some schools. Those that will be forced to close will be the low decile schools. All for a measly 43 million dollars the government had to back down from with their higher class sizes looney notion. If this government are serious about saving $43 million. close the PMs office, it costs the taxpayer $40 million per year just to run the Prime Ministers office.

I have taught in the USA, Asia and New Zealand. I was concerned when National Standards was adopted in NZ because of how terribly damaging it has been in the USA. Teachers begin to teach to the test and a well-rounded education becomes lost for the purposes of so-called data collection. Why NZ has adopted such a failed policy is difficult to understand. League Tables will be part of that failed policy. Government should try valuing the fantastic work most NZ teachers provide...because NZ really has a multitude of world class teachers. Perhaps they should try that for a change!
