Ministry Forums


The Ministry of Education has run a number of forums drawing together school principals and PPTA representatives but virtually no representatives from the academic community. It is clearly in the Ministry's interests to obtain the compliance of school principals and the teacher unions. Forum discussions have been wide ranging, but have still been circumscribed the non-negotiable nature of most structural aspects of the NCEA.

The following links will take you to a critical summary and discussion of the various Ministry Forums.

 The September 1999 Forum: Can we avoid the iceberg!

 The November 1999 Forum: More of the same?
