Charter Schools a Positive Initiative

“Charter Schools provide a great opportunity for education to diversify and strengthen in New Zealand,” says Steve Thomas, Researcher at Maxim Institute. “They would allow community groups and entrepreneurial educators to start new and different schools to the regular state schools.”

“Contrary to some of the arguments being made, the neediest children in our education system are the ones who are set to benefit most from Charter schools, as they are the ones who need creative, new schooling options,” says Thomas.

“Charter schools would help to break down the current, uniform one-size-fits-all approach to public education in New Zealand by providing more choice and diversity in state schooling.”
