Podcast: Class divides? The impact of classroom streaming
Dr Michael Johnston and Ben Macintyre talk about the impact of classroom streaming in NZ, which is the subject of their new research report. It is a topic of debate in NZ, with calls for the practice to be banned by 2030.
Their report Class divides?: The impact of streaming on educational achievement and equality examines NZ and international evidence on the effects of streaming on students' learning. Rather than banning streaming, they urge the Ministry of Education to conduct a large-scale study to help schools make informed decisions on streaming.
