Every NCEA Level 1 assessment unit – the achievement standards – will be replaced from next year. The new standards were published last month. The Ministry of Education has been running workshops to brief teachers on their content.
This week, I heard from a disgruntled physics teacher who had attended one of these workshops with a colleague. Afterwards, she decided to take a job in a private school, where she will no longer have to teach NCEA courses. She commented that many teachers are concerned but don’t want to speak up for fear of repercussions. Her colleague has decided to resign from the teaching profession altogether.
