Following on from yesterday’s announcement of proposed help to equip young students with technology David Cunliffe’s speech today is expected to announce reduced class sizes using the money set aside for the so called super teacher policy.
From Radio New Zealand:
The Labour Party will unveil on Sunday its plans to reduce class sizes by funding more teachers, using cash clawed back from current Government funding for elite teachers.
The party is holding its election-year congress in Wellington and plans to release its education policy on Sunday afternoon.
Labour will fund its plan to reduce class sizes by scrapping the Government’s $359 million plan to appoint teachers to expert and lead teacher roles.
And David Cunliffe’s speech to congress will be live cast.
