Just who are the NZ charter school hopefuls?

This is the list of those who showed an interest in opening an NZ charter school.

Of these, it seems 5 applied, and we know that Destiny Church was turned down as they had a good old media tanty about the fact (which was all the more amusing since they had denied they even wanted to open one) – which leaves 4 hopefuls.

It will be interesting to see who they are, where they are and who they plan to serve.

Those ‘winners’ will be announced soon, and will open their doors to students in February 2014.

This is the start of the privatisation of our state school system.

Enjoy.

  1. This is a disgrace to New Zealand. If these people have a genuine interest in NZ Education then they would be supporting our free secular and compulsory system. They are deliberately fragmenting it because it does not follow their particular obsessions and superstitions.
    Also this is a very difficult site. I am looking at butterflies and background text I can’t read while I am trying to concentrate on the content.
    Pretty though.

    • Jeff, I agree, and I think if allowing such freedoms in learning envirnments is a proven good idea then all schools should be given the same freedom. The fact that they haven’t been tells me that this is more about splitting our education system and sneakily privatising it.

      Also, duly noted re the background. I love it but, yes, it is kind of busy. I may serarch out a slightly calmer version… thanks for the feedback.

  2. How can they give all schools the same freedoms when the unions are so opposed to them? That’s why it hasn’t happened. Nothing to do with a secret agenda. Good old fashioned opposition to change.
