The work of school boards – trustees’ perspectives: Findings from the NZCER national survey of primary and intermediate schools 2016

Eliza Stevens and Cathy Wylie

This report looks at trustees responses to a questionnaire about effective governance, as described by the Education Review Office.

The report draws on data from the NZCER National Survey of Primary and Intermediate Schools, which was conducted in late August and early September 2016. We sent questionnaires via school principals to board chairs and trustees.  The response rate was 25% (n=176), with 61% of those responses from board chairs.
