Government endorses ACT policy and announces four new partnership schools
"The ACT Party is thrilled at the government’s announcement of four new Kura Hourua Partnership schools." said ACT leader Jamie Whyte.
"Kura Hourua Partnership schools are designed to bring committed people into educating our most vulnerable New Zealanders.
They are the best hope we have for maintaining the dream of an egalitarian New Zealand.
The current crop of Kura Hourua Partnership schools include sponsors like Michael Jones, Sir Willie Jackson and two proven schools from the previous rounds shows the talent coming forward to be part of a better New Zealand education system.
Our political foes would rather close down Partnership schools and exclude these talented New Zealanders from educating the next generation of vulnerable pupils. They are in the service of their political paymasters, the Unions.
I applaud the National Government’s confidence in ACT's policy and look forward to working with them on this and other issues in a centre right government in the next three years." said Jamie Whyte
