ALWYN POOLE: Tinetti says Education isn’t political

Jan Tinetti, Minister of Education, says education isn't political. She needs to go into areas such as South Auckland and explain results like those below. (NB: I use UE for LEAVERS as a proxy for the academic results at lower levels).


University Entrance for Leavers


– Papakura High School – 8%


– Mangere College – 8.9%


– Tangaroa College – 11.1%


– Southern Cross Campus – 11.6%


– Manurewa High School – 12.2% (down from 23.6% in one year)


– James Cook High School – 12.8%


– Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate – 13.2%


These are almost all in long-term Labour electorates but there is no sign that Labour cares. They are not the worst outcomes for schools in NZ but they are near the bottom and in the South Auckland area, this is what Labour calls “choice”.


For those who think ethnicity and ability are strongly linked St Joseph’s Maori Girls had 92% of their 2022 Leavers graduate with UE.


What are the solutions people? Economist Cameron Bagrie notes that if we want to see what the nation will look like in 20 years time – look at our education system now.


These young people are being failed and Hipkins was the Minister of Education for over 5 years.


Keep in mind we now have a situation where 25% of our young people are leaving school, after 13,200 funded hours, without even having Level 1 NCEA.




(Please email me for the full date set on every high school in NZ re L3 NCEA, UE, Retention, Progress to Degree level study … all in ranked spreadsheets. Plus system aggregates. alwyn.poole@gmail.com)

If Education is not Political where is it that Schools and Education depends on the Budget of Government. What is insideous is the Maori in English and their stupidness about cutting out Sciences and that is what we need Engineers and Sciences these are staples. Some Maori have one in their family obviously Ms Tinetti means to say that Maori have not grasped Government or Political Standing within the wider scope of a Marae Based Protocol of living their Government and Governance no further from their doorstep or at the gate better said. Look at John Tamahere with Waipareira Trust and the misappropriations to which extend past his education or Presidency than a Leader which is in charge with the…

In essence Jan Tinetti is correct; its not Political, anyone with half a brain knows the root cause of the wonderful lock-step curriculum in schools, sexualization, fake history's, propaganda, un-scientific, confusion, and so on being overrun in our schools, is a directive from the UN/WEF ; the push is from "unelected, Globalist Corporations", our very own Parliament make-up, being so! these Fabian/Socialist Communist ideologies will continue to flourish while our traitorous leadership prevails- as most of you want to vote them back in!!!!!!!!!!!! Understand, they don't care about you least of all our children or the mechanics of drop outs, or pass rates etc. the future is being set right under all our noses - a tyrannical rule, with…

I can see demography, IQ and ethnicity written into the numbers. It's not commonally considered these days but Maori and other Polynesians have an avergae IQ of 85,, 1 std deviation below the Euro Pakeha norm. (Asians beat us by 1 std devn the other way.

Ethnic tribal Maori are rationed as to visible achievements. The higher the title rank the greater the achievemt allowed--that extends to the children. I have taught in Samoa and the few who spoke in class were from higher titled families.. I was aware of such connectiona and manners at the time.


The colleges named show varying numbers. They indirectly reflect the likelihood of Maori being enrolled there too. St Joseph’s Maori Girls I expect…

Confirmation of what one could expect. Though surely that condition, inclusive of IQ is part of a social strata that cannot be confined to any particular ethnicity.

Though demographically determined, maybe, should it be the winners in a society that can get categorised as such.


There has to be a lot of future explanation to be done, both socially and with IQ, if one is to look at the current inhabitants of the Beehive as an example.

You cannot blame the deplorables for any...... brain power there.

I've just read through the 2015 Curriculum and found not much to object to. So, I guess the new government could just go back to that with some tweaks maybe, which would save a lot of money? Here's the plan the current government has for the Refresh Curriculum and its implementation:


Here's the link to download the Refresh Curriculum Draft (a lot of it is in Te Reo): https://curriculumrefresh.education.govt.nz/te-mataiaho

You over looked the fact that most of the images contained in that document are of Maori. ?????

If Jan Tinetti says education is not political then she is ignorant and would be better suited to be Minister for Ignorance - She could get a second job as a consultant to the government!
