Welcome! This is your place to read and comment on our work and goals.
- “National Standards are a useful record of where a child is at a point in time. They don’t improve achievement per se, but rather show us where best to target resources and help teachers understand where they need to apply focus.
- The Education Council encourages teachers, learners and families to access online safety tools, support and advice from Netsafe. It is a New Zealand-based online safety organisation with information on how to manage online challenges.
- Our chairperson Barbara Ala’alatoa agrees deciles are a blunt instrument when it comes to helping lift student achievement.
Start of new year a time of promise
