Is this what we have come to? In 2013 people worldwide are fighting to claim back a child’s right to a decent education.
Big business has taken over.
They saw dollar signs and little by little snuck in, a charter schools here, standardised testing there, rigid curricula and resource requirements forcing schools to buy only from certain companies.
And before you know it schools are about making money for corporations, not about a well-rounded and proper education for our children.
America has seen the worst, with 20 years or more of this.
If we want to stop this taking hold in New Zealand, if we want to prevent this disaster down the (short) road, then we all need to speak up now.
We want to improve out schools by making them better for our kids, not by making them into businesses for the few.
Parents – Students – Teachers – Time to start speaking up.
