Government to reintroduce charter schools

From Morning Report, 8:16 am on 4 December 2023

Some former charter schools are interested in leaving the state system and returning to charter or partnership school status.

The government is reintroducing the publicly funded private schools which ran under contracts with the Education Ministry.

Eleven of the schools still exist as designated character or integrated state schools.
