It's the first day of term four, but Auckland students still don't know when they'll be back in the classroom. 

That's despite initial indications they would be coming back 

National Party Education Spokesperson Paul Goldsmith says we should get on with it once enough teachers are vaccinated. 

He says told Kate Hawkesby the real danger isn't kids going to school, it's kids not going to school. 

"They're falling behind, they're losing track with their friends, losing the habit of getting to school. And let's face it, it's a complete lottery as to whether they're actually learning when they're in lockdown."
