Save our schools: solutions for New Zealand's education crisis

This publication draws on the body of research compiled at The New Zealand Initiative over the past decade to bring together a coherent plan to improve the New Zealand's education system.

No evidence, no evaluation, no exit

This report examines New Zealand’s redesigned classrooms. The limited evidence on how numerous they have become, what kinds of spatial configurations they comprise, how large they are, and how are they being used is also discussed.
