Audio: Education Minister, Chris Hipkins is reviewing the contracts of six charter schools. Nick Hyde speaks to Mike Hosking
A number of charter schools are upset at the prospect of their contracts being cancelled.
Education Minister, Chris Hipkins is reviewing the contracts of six charter schools about to open, four of those deals signed by National just weeks before the election.
Vanguard runs a military-style charter school in Auckland and won a contract to open another one in Christchurch in 2019.
Chief Executive, Nick Hyde told Mike Hosking he won’t be happy if they’re written off.
“We certainly think we benefit students and parents and would be disappointed to think that we’ve got to keep juggling or flip-flopping what we are every three years depending on who’s in government.”
