The Herald reports:
Education Minister Hekia Parata confirmed yesterday that 11 “communities” made up of 90 schools would kick off the $359 million programme, which paid the best teachers and principals more to lift achievement across groups of schools.
Further details would be revealed later this week but the groups of schools included the full range of deciles, primary, intermediate and secondary schools and were all over the country, including Auckland.
Each of the communities would choose one problem to focus on and a principal and several teachers from within the group would be paid more to lead this work.
Good to see 90 schools already getting involved, especially as the final details were only ratified a few weeks ago.
