Otago principals are calling for the Ministry of Education to
review the system for paying limited statutory managers (LSM)
following claims some are charging ''exorbitant'' amounts of
money which could be better spent on pupil education.
The final analysis of the Ministry of Education's 2012 NCEA
data shows the percentage of Otago pupils leaving school with
an NCEA level 2 qualification remains among the highest in
the country - and the rates are continuing to increase.
The growing rift between educators and the Ministry of
Education will be obvious as thousands of teachers and
parents take to New Zealand streets on Saturday to save
Kiwis' quality public education system.
