This recently released report contains the main findings from NZCER's 2012 national survey of secondary schools. The survey draws on responses from more than half the country’s secondary school principals and from hundreds of teachers, parents, and members of boards of trustees and was carried out in July and August 2012.
It is part of a national survey series conducted by NZCER since 1989 to track issues and trends across the education system.
The report discusses the views of principals, teachers, trustees and parents on a range of issues from funding and staffing levels, to NCEA, technology in schools and workload.
