So despite the vast amount more funding (5x more per pupil) to charter schools, 1 of the 5 first, Te Kura Hourua ki Whangaruru, is failing abysmally.
The Government has previously said that all their problems were fixed, or being fixed – but they clearly aren’t.
ongoing problems at the school include the quality of teaching, learning, management, leadership and student engagement.
The school’s roll was 47 last month – well below its guaranteed minimum roll of 71 and the 61 students who started the year.
So how does the government handle this? Don’t include the school in your charter school reports. And open 4 more new charter schools.
The public gets to keep forking out more for a failed model, with no accountability.
This government is showing it puts ideology over evidence.
