Every parent wants to see their child succeed and live a happy and fulfilled life, and a good education is a vital part of that. That’s why while the media and the political Left might be fascinated by leaked emails, what people want to talk to me about on the doorstep and at meetings is education – what will National do to help ensure their kids have the chance to succeed.
On Monday night I attended a panel discussion hosted by the Principal’s Association in Hawera – a replica of a similar event I attended in Whanganui a couple of weeks ago. Both gave me a great chance to get up in front of a group of people who are passionate about education and set out National’s vision and ideas.
National believes high-quality education provides the opportunity for any child from any background to get ahead and make the most of their life.
We are focused on raising achievement for all our children, and ensuring we are delivering better education services which meet the needs of every child.
