IES - "Investing in Educational Success", NZEI

Teachers continue to reject controversial $359m education plan, say NZEI

Press Release from NZEI

nzei logoThe latest announcement that just 129 further schools have expressed interest in the Government’s controversial $359 million Investing in Educational Success scheme is a clear indication of the lack of confidence that teachers and principals have in the plan.

It has been more than a year since the Prime Minister announced that the Government was intending to spend millions of dollars creating new roles for teachers and principals.

NZEI President Louise Green says to date less than ten percent of schools have taken the first step towards signing up to the scheme.

“This clearly shows that teachers and principals do not believe in the IES top-down managerial approach or that creating new highly paid roles for some will benefit children’s learning.  That’s why the majority continue to reject the IES.”
