The reality about charter schools

From an evidence based source, none other than Te Ururoa Flavell, Maori party leader:

The Maori Party is putting the hard word on Labour's Maori MPs to oppose one of their own Member's Bill's that abolishes charter schools.
The Bill, belonging to Labour MP Chris Hipkins is due to be debated in Parliament later today.
Maori Party Co-leader Te Ururoa Flavell said Labour's Maori MPs know in their heart of hearts, because they have family members actively involved in charter schools, that the schools are achieving results upwards of 10, 20, and 30 percent of the national average, particularly those in Te Tai Tokerau.

The fact that the Labour party are opposed to charter schools when the evidence is clear that they achieve far better results than the public schools prove that the labour party doesn't care about children getting a good education. They seem to want children to be dumbed down and grow up to be non thinking factory fodder. Labour are of course the anti success party.

Labour know that intelligent, educated and independent people are less likely to vote for them so its just self preservation to want a biggish block of people to remain locked into old political alliances that really do nothing except keep them screwed down.

Time for NZ to follow TRUMP

Charter every school in the country.
Ensure all schools can charge mandatory fees.
Repeal the education Act, especially the school leaving age.
