Decade of Data Addiction To Be Written Out of Act
''The Minister's launch of the Education Amendment Bill will formally herald the end of a decade of addiction to national standards data," said Whetu Cormick, President of the New Zealand Principals' Federation (NZPF).
Changes proposed in the Amendment will remove national standards and bring the Act into line with the new Government's policies for education.
"We celebrated when Minister Hopkins announced the Government's policy to scrap national standards," said Cormick, "and now we applaud the Government for following through to expunge them from legislation," he said.
"Schools will now be freed from the shackles of obsessive data collection to embrace our broad, world class curriculum which is the key to improving learning progress for all our young people," said Cormick.
