Three major questions for three major thought leaders

Education Review asks three leading international educationalists – Sugata Mitra, Sir John Jones and Frances Valintine – to respond to three big questions.

Will CoOLs give the virtual learning network a permanent home?

Will communities of online learning (CoOLs) provide the Virtual Learning Network with the resourcing it needs to be sustainable and continue to develop? Or will they unleash an open educational marketplace that has the potential to undermine public schooling? JUDE BARBACK looks at the most polarising element of the Education (Update) Amendment Bill.

The big debate: should te reo be compulsory in our schools?

JUDE BARBACK looks at the arguments for and against making te reo Māori compulsory in New Zealand schools.

New Zealand’s first charter school – three years on

New rugby league education programme launched

A new Rugby League education programme was launched today to help promote learning through rugby league.

Are league tables a fair way to compare school effectiveness?

DR JOHN BOEREBOOM suggests that a school’s effectiveness should be judged on the basis of how much the students learned from the time they entered the school to the time they left rather than simply relying on a traditional ‘snapshot’ measure in the NCEA exams.

A new programme for primary schools has been launched to assist in teaching the next generation about sustainability.
