Survey of All Schools in New Zealand
All schools in New Zealand were invited by email on Monday to participate in a replication of the Ministry of Education funded study conducted by a Massey research team in 2003-4. This 2012 survey hopes to discover where we are now a decade, determining areas of growth over the last decade, as well as areas in need of further development. If your school would like to participate in the study, please email Dr Tracy Riley by clicking here.
