Labour will get rid of decile school system

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

If Labour is re-elected, the school decile system will be gone and a new "Equity Index" put in place. It's aim is to increase resources for the most disadvantaged students in New Zealand. What do you think? Has Chris Hipkins got it right? Will our kids be better off, or is it just a new name on an old system?
