We received the following press release from Act this afternoon. Clearly, the Maori community sees a lot of value in Partnership schools as both new schools are targeting Maori students.Politically the more Maori see their children getting a better deal, the more marginalised Labour’s “solutions” will become. In some electorates the extended families vote alone could be devastating for Labour who will run with a policy of closing the one positive thing in their family’s life.
Under-Secretary to the Minister of Education David Seymour today announced that two new Partnership Schools | Kura Hourua will open in 2017.
“The new sponsors submitted strong applications and we look forward to seeing this reflected in the learning outcomes of their students,” says Mr Seymour.
