ROTORUA NZ FIRST LIST MP FLETCHER TABUTEAU
New Zealand parents want choice and flexibility in their children’s education. New Zealand First does not believe introducing the profit motive into the system will lead to better outcomes for our kids, as such we adamantly oppose charter schools.
Teachers and Principals would love to provide more options and flexibility but are stifled by a government that insist on controlling all aspects of education. Instead we want to allow educators to be more flexible with student needs, which includes allowing more special character schools.
There is too much inflexibility, set by Government, which we want to change.
‘‘I believe in giving wha¯nau the power to shape their lives. We should not be afraid to do things differently and improve outcomes for Ma¯ori.’’
Rotorua Ma¯ori Party candidate Wendy Biddle.
