BIlingualism concerns over NZ plan for Pacific education

From , 6:01 am on 27 July 2020

A new action plan for Pacific Education in New Zealand has sparked concerns among some educationalists.

Last week Associate Minister for Education Jenny Salesa launched a new ten-year plan that looks to support Pacific learners and families to achieve their educational dreams.

It looks to confront systematic challenges which have been holding the education of many Pasifika back, but not everyone's happy with how the plan shapes up.
