Kōrero on the future of education in New Zealand

We’ve reached out to all New Zealanders as part of a kōrero on the future of education in New Zealand.

Most of the kōrero is taking place around the significant changes being proposed to almost our entire New Zealand education system, as part of the Education Work Programme.

New Zealander’s have provided over 43,000 submissions and allowed us to hear from those – such as children and young people, Māori, Pacific peoples, parents, people with learning support needs – whose voices have not been traditionally heard in discussions about the future of education.

We’ve received an amazing array of diverse views which have helped us understand the needs of different groups. We’ve begun collating what you told us into a series of reports.

Based on what we’ve heard, we’re already changing the way we work together to shape the future of education in New Zealand.
