From 2023 the decades old decile system will be replaced with the equity index (EQI), with support increasing by $75m per annum. Daryl Aim, the tumuaki at Natone Park School in Waitangirua in east Porirua, spoke to Ako about the impact of the old system and what the new system means for the future.
Recently, AKO spoke with two school principals about their efforts to bridge the digital divide in the lockdown. We caught up with them again to find out how their schools are managing the transition to Level 3 and beyond. They reminded us that behind the digital divide is a greater inequity.
