Rushed NCEA guidelines not up to scratch

From Morning Report, 8:25 am on 29 February 2024

Some teachers refused to help when the government asked them just days before Christmas to write guidelines for teaching new NCEA standards.

They weren't swayed by the offer of $5000 to complete the work by late January and Education Ministry staff had to do nearly half of it themselves.

In the end some of it wasn't up to scratch - a third were sent back for revision.
