This discussion document was developed in 2013 to support teachers and others to engage with findings from the e-in-science research project, carried out by the University of Waikato and the New Zealand Council for Educational Research under contract to the Ministry of Education.
Secondary schools in 2012 is the latest from NZCER's national survey series.
The survey draws on responses from 177 secondary school principals and from hundreds of teachers, parents and members of boards of trustees. The survey was carried out in July and August 2012. It is part of a national survey series conducted by NZCER since 1989 to track issues and trends across the education system.
There are many positives in the findings but they also highlight persistent concerns about funding levels, workload, support and access to reliable technology.
