Parents join education sector and young people at Education Summit

Parents from around the country are joining people from all parts of the education sector and community to discuss the future of learning at two Education Summit events.

The first event – in Christchurch on 5-6 May – brought parents together with young people, adult learners, Māori, Pasifika, teachers, researchers and education leaders at all levels, disabled people and families and whānau of children and young people with learning support needs, disability organisations, and employers and industry.

The second event takes place in Auckland on 12-13 May.

The Summit events are a milestone in the Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga, launched by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in March.

The Government wants to hear the views of parents to help create a shared vision for the future of learning.

A key feature is an online public survey, and as of 8 May, more than 8,000 responses had been completed, with around 56% coming from parents.
