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