A former decile 1 high school is set to lose about $100,000 in annual funding – more than $100 a student – under the Government’s new education scheme, NZ Herald reports. Principal Myles Hogarty of De La Salle College in Auckland’s Māngere East, said it was an “extremely disappointing surprise” when they found out their index number meant their funding would drop by about $100,000. The Government was warned about this precise outcome and told by Treasury to increase overall funding to help soften the blow for low decile schools, but rejected the advice.
