Why your voice is needed

There are two opportunities to have your say and be part of the Education Conversation – Kōrero Mātauranga.
Our Schooling Futures: Stronger Together Whiria Ngā Kura Tūātinitini and He Taonga te Tamaiti – Every Child a taonga.
Both are seeking your voices to help shape the future of the education system for tamariki of all ages – ECE through to high school.
EDJE Strengths’ work is dedicated to the promotion, acceptance and benefits of embracing diversity and  we encourage you to have your say in this important korero.  
It is recognised that the current education system needs to be responsive to the demands of the 21st century. As our society changes, so too the need for education to reflect the diversity of values, teaching ideas, notions of success and the changing workforce needs that it is designed around.
Many voices are needed to contribute to these conversations that includes educators, parents, students, whanau and wider stakeholders.
The students of today will be our doctors, politicians, designers, planners, problem solvers and critical thinkers of tomorrow.
Time is of the essence to share your thought, ideas, and concerns to the surveys before they close
