We've got some more detailed commentary below, but some of the highlights include:
- A special feature on how the high and rising cost of housing and living in Auckland is affecting education for students, families and teachers.
- Data on school leavers that show we are failing to prepare significant numbers of young Aucklanders to earn a living, with more than 25,000 aged 15-24 not in education, employment or training last year.
- Challenging statistics on te reo Māori and other languages in schools.
So there is still a great deal to do to make our education system more equitable for all Aucklanders. We need different kinds of collaboration if we are to transform the lives of our children, families and communities.
We hope you find our Snapshot Auckland 2017 useful to start discussions around education, skills and life-long learning in communities.
The snapshot can be downloaded from our website so please feel free to share the link with your networks and on social media (don’t forget to #cometauckland, thanks!). And I would welcome your comments by email as well.
Please contact Shaheeda at firstname.lastname@example.org to order a printed copy.
We are now working on data snapshots for each of Auckland Council’s 21 local boards. So keep an eye out over the coming weeks.
