On this week's podcast:
State education has been in a void in New Zealand for a number of years.
After spending some time as a world leader, the education field has been ploughed with incompetence. In all but a few schools.
NCEA has failed, and the restructuring currently being attempted will also fail.
Rangitoto Principal, Patrick Gale, explains why the country's largest school is rejecting NCEA Level 1 and creating its own diploma.
The number of schools considering the same is uncertain, but is on the increase.
From the NZ Initiative think tank, Dr Michael Johnson deals to an incompetent Education Dept. “Not fit for purpose” is his emphatic opinion.
And, of course, The Mailroom with Mrs Producer.
