Union flunky and PPTA National Office staffer Michael Stevenson jumped on my earlier post, as is usual he is opposing Charter Schools without any eveidence.
Here are some real stats he might like to comment on.
In 2003 Maori were 19.1% behind non-Maori in Level 2 NCEA. They are now 23.1% behind. 46.1% of Maori are not achieving Level 2 (23% of non-Maori).
Keep in mind – that is for the students getting through to that level.
In 2010 34.3% of Maori were not getting even getting basic numeracy or literacy (as opposed to 20% of non-Maori – scandal in itself.
So what are the PPTA protecting again? Why do they endorse these differentials?
