Look at past studies into classrooms

The privately educated premier who has never had a child in school, and dropped out of a foreign college before attaining a degree, has determined that his 12 disciples can figure out how to “equip our children with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in the 21st century” (Adriana Lagrange).

Perhaps he could pull the dozens of binders from the archives of premier Hancock’s “Inspiring Education” report that “presents a vision for education to 2030.” Panel member Keray Henke should be aware of this as he supervised much of that work as deputy minister. Someone must have skipped school the day the noun “red tape” and the verb “eliminate” were covered. I’d like to see the dollars attached to these endless studies directed to the classroom.
