Transformational change needed to reform Education system

Transformational change needed to reform our Education system

The Human Rights Commission welcomes the release of the Tomorrows Schools Independent Taskforce: “Our schooling futures: Stronger Together’ Report.

Acting Chief Human Rights Commissioner Paula Tesoriero says the recommendations in the report are an opportunity to create an education system that is innovative, flexible and focused on collaboration rather than in competition.

“I’m excited by the potential that the recommendations offer for all groups that the report acknowledges the current system is not working well for,” says Ms Tesoriero.

“I am looking forward to engaging with the detail around how the proposals will work in practice.”

“As the Disability Rights Commissioner, I will be looking at the details in the report to ensure that the rights of all disabled children are fully realised in our education system.

“I am pleased that there is an opportunity for people to provide feedback to the Taskforce. I encourage New Zealanders to engage in the report and its recommendations and to feel confident that these reforms deliver the systemic change needed.”
