8:12 Insight Top Teachers - Divided Schools
The Government's multi-million-dollar plan to cluster schools together and pay more to their top teachers is dividing schools. Some say the scheme, known as Investing in Educational Success, is the most significant change for education in 25 years. But others fear it will lead to the appointment of super-principals and destroy the autonomy of the country's 2500 schools. In this week's Insight, Radio New Zealand's education correspondent, John Gerritsen, talks to schools that have jumped into the scheme, and to the sceptics who won't have a bar of it.
Produced by Philippa Tolley.
