ZenTiger Education Standards in NZ improve

Children are thought to be better off with the Ministry of Education's radical new plan to improve teaching outcomes.
The Education Ministry is to cut the primary school year by a week.

The ministry has confirmed a two-week break between terms one and two effective this year would continue in future years.

Easter would often occur during that break, but would not next year, ministry spokesman Vince Cholewa said. Normal statutory holidays will apply for Easter.

Softcocks only need apply.

This is not a performer-friendly workplace.

Meh, kids already have too much time on their hands and nothing to do in the holidays. Expect to see more fires lit and other anarchic behaviour.

Good one.

Imagine the spectacular improvement in outcomes if teachers were removed from schools totally.!

This is hilarious, just like SCair new zealand adding more seats because "our customers asked for it"
