Treasury fantasy to gut education
When the Treasury shit kicker says education results have been 'static' - you all understand NZ's public education ranks near the top right? So it remaining 'static' is actually an incredible result.
The problem in NZ is the so called 'long tail' those students who perform very poorly, and we know who they are, they are those living in lower socio-economic environments! That's a pure underfunding issue, and it sure as hell won't be solved by adding 2 to 3 more kids per class room. This is a cost cutting measure, to dress it up as a solution when it can't even acknowledge the issue correctly shows that Treasury are part of the problem.
