From Morning Report, 7:57 am on 9 April 2020

For anyone thinking that the end of a Level Four lockdown will automatically mean the kids can go back to school, take a deep breath.

Minister of Education Chris Hipkins has made it clear there will be no rush back into classrooms.

The Minister yesterday unveiled a package of study resources for schools, students and parents to help them with remote study.

The Opposition says assisting remote learning is good, but schools are also reporting significant financial challenges, and these need attention too.

National's education spokesperson Nikki Kaye speaks to Susie Ferguson.
