The dangers of TPPA to the New Zealand school system

Our government is getting ready to sign the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) which is a trade agreement with America and ten other Pacific countries that could endanger our Public school system.

This agreement is likely to further commercialise New Zealand’s education system and restrict the rights of future governments to regulate the quality and provision of education.

Tim Groser has admitted in parliament that any agreement will include clauses that allow corporations to sue our government  if our laws stand in the way of their trade.

The education market is worth billions to huge international corporations driven only by profits and dividends – not by educational excellence.

Our choices about our children’s schooling could be influenced by countries that are not doing nearly as well as us. The quality of public education in New Zealand is in danger

Please, take action. Email or write to Trade Minister Tim Groser and Prime Minster John Key to seek their assurance that any trade agreement they sign will not limit future governments to regulate the quality of Public Education In New Zealand.

Thank you, Dianne Khan
