We pulled up a chair in the Minister of Education Chris Hipkins' office to ask him questions from the teaching profession. Teachers submitted their questions to us in the days before the interview and more were asked live on the day. We asked the Minister about a range of topics including solutions to the teacher shortage, early childhood education ratios, ORS funding, bullying and wellbeing, compulsory te reo Māori and much more.
We are working with the Minister to get answers for those whose questions we didn't get to on the day. Watch the full interview here or head to our Facebook page to join the conversation.
A full transcript of the interview is also available.
