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.
