“Chris Hipkins has tried to avoid any scrutiny of the final Partnership Schools report by performing a classic ‘Friday news dump’”, says ACT Leader David Seymour.
“The Government didn’t want anyone to see this report from independent consultants Martin Jenkins because it paints a glowing picture of the Partnership School model.
“If the report has found that Partnership Schools were failing, Chris Hipkins would be shouting it from the rooftops.
“Instead, he dumped the report in an obscure section of the Ministry of Education website on a Friday night.
“So much for this Government being the most open and transparent in New Zealand history”, says Mr Seymour.
