PPTA / NZEI paid union meetings September 2016

better funding not bulk funding footerThe purpose of these meetings was to inform teachers, principals and support staff of the key proposals in the Government’s Funding Review, and to determine a response.

Currently the government is considering significant changes to the funding of the education system.  One of the proposals that cabinet has approved for consultation is the ‘global budget’.  This is effectively full bulk funding of schools.

The Ministry said, when the funding review was announced, that it was seeking “excellence and equity of student achievement”.

The global funding system is likely to have the opposite effect.
