Bonus Quote of the Day: "I think we are standing in the quicksands of NZ education right now"




 
"I think we are standing in the quicksands of NZ education right now... We are going to be going into a deep, dark place in what I see as a lack of responsibility by the adults for the children in this conversation.
    "I frankly believe that the removal of NCEA Level 1 in the manner that they are describing it - literacy and numeracy and even having a conversation about does financial and civic literacy fit into that definition of literacy - is a very, very dangerous start."
~ Auckland Grammar principal Tim O'Connor, commenting on the Government's "radical changes to senior school exams [that he slams] as "dangerous" and "irresponsible."

  1. Conversations with the totalitarian left are meaningless. Leave them in the swamp. Parents will have to pay at underground private schools for a decent education.
