Ministry’s response to NZEI’s Discrimination Report

To be attributed to Iona Holsted, Secretary for Education.

 “We are pleased NZEI have made this research public.

 “It is an important issue to talk about and backs up findings by the Office of the Children’s Commissioner of children’s experiences of racism at school.

 “Regrettably discrimination still occurs in all walks of life. In schools, it has particularly harmful impacts adversely affecting a child’s sense of self and their learning outcomes.

 “We look forward to working with the NZEI on addressing issues of discrimination in the education workforce.”
