After speakers from Study Auckland, Education New Zealand and Youthline give their perspectives, the 50 attendees discussed key issues in small groups; they then reported back on the results. These results have been compiled into a summary report. It looks at the expectations students have of their time in New Zealand, particularly in Auckland’s inner city, and the discrimination and exclusion a number of them have to face.
Most attendees were from inner city education institutions and found it useful to share views and ideas and to network with others in a similar role. We expect to hold more forums on this complex but important topic next year.
