Tomorrow's Schools education reform

Whakahouhou mātauranga Ngā Kura Mō Āpōpō

In 1989 the government enacted sweeping changes to the education system. These changes created the Ministry of Education, Education Review Office, NZ Qualifications Authority and Tertiary Education Commission, abolished Education Boards and established site-based community governance through school boards of trustees. The rules of engagement for school property and funding, zoning, special education, teacher education and professional development were all part of this package.

On this page you will find links to the core documents for the 1989 reforms that came to be known as Tomorrow's Schools, and the 2018 review of the Tomorrow’s Schools system.
