"The appointment of Karen Sewell as Chief Reviewer of the Education Review Office has the full endorsement of New Zealand First" Education Spokesperson, Hon Brian Donnelly, declared today.
"Not only does she bring extensive experience in the field, both as a teacher and a principal, she also has experience with the review office and is fully conversant with its role.
Karen has a high level of professionalism and capability and will ensure the Education Review Office carries out its critical role in a constructive manner," Mr Donnelly said.
Brian Donnelly was Minister Responsible for the Education Review Office during the period of the New Zealand First-National coalition government and, earlier in his career, worked in the Education Review Office.
