Update on the Education (Update) Amendment Bill

While almost every group that presented to the committee  spoke against the Communities of Online Learning (at least in their current form), it appears that the New Zealand government doesn’t care what stakeholders in the education sector or the research has to say on the topic…  They’re charging ahead anyway to privatize public online learning!

Good afternoon,

Thank you very much to everyone who gave a written and oral submissions on the Education (Update) Amendment Bill.

The Education and Science committee have read your submissions and considered proposed changes to the bill. We have written a report detailing our recommended changes, which have been included in an updated version of the bill.

You can read our report here (amended bill included):
