The Kiwi Charter School Scandal

Charter Schools - Privatisation of education by stealth and with NO mandate

Charter Schools – Privatisation of education by stealth and with NO mandate

Please everyone share this – tell people!

Ordinary Kiwis have no idea!

According to the government’s plans for charter schools:

  • They can PROFIT from our kids’ schooling (Money paid to them can be spent however they like and kept as profit by the company running the school)
  • They can teach them how they want (goodbye National Curriculum, despite being such a world renowned document)
  • And they can do all of that in secret (no ombudsman and no Official Information Act will apply) (update – some ombudsman powers have been agreed but still no OIA)
  • They are allowed to have NO BOT (goodbye community involvement)
  • They are allowed to have staff with NO TRAINING (yes, that is bound to raise achievement)
  • …and for all that they will be allowed to make a PROFIT from the taxes our government GIVES them to run the bloody school.

It is the biggest scandal ever.

These are YOUR taxes.

This is YOUR country.

THESE ARE YOUR KIDS.

No to charter schools.

No.  No.  No.

Education not for sale

Please everyone share this – tell people!

  1. I just emailed Tariana but Pita Sharples might be even better. http://www.maoriparty.org/index.php?pag=cms&id=117&p=contact-us.html I suggest lots of people who visit this site do the same and put this as a place to find links and info. The Maori Party are being conned into thinking Charter Schools will give success and independence when they will just steal money from needy kids and put it into the pockets of people who understand, and care nothing, for kids, communities and education.
