Podcast #27: Briar Lipson on what’s going wrong in our schools
In this week’s New Zealand Initiative podcast, the country’s education system keeps slipping in standards and producing students who can barely solve the simplest sums or read basic instructions.

Briar Lipson is in the final stages of releasing her latest in-depth report on education and says the split between the various socioeconomic groups in New Zealand will continue to widen without a serious course correction.
