Education Act!! Education Act!! Presentation Transcript

  • The establishment of 1877 Education Act
  • Prior-Education act.
    Before the education act the south island was more established and well funded education and schools rather than the north. Due to more churches and because of the money from the gold rush.
  • Centralized
    Ensure that the quality of education was equal all over the country.
    Make sure that every province was taught from the same curriculum.
  • Main objectives from the education act
  • Free
    To ensure every child received education independent of their social class and social economic status without worrying about the cost.
  • Secular
    Making sure that education was non-bias from religion. Education no longer came from just talking from the bible and more about ensuring every child had the skills to succeed. No matter what their religious beliefs were.
  • Compulsory
    Schooling became compulsory for all children. This ensured that they were not causing trouble in there area.
  • The education act was about building citizenship and creating equal opportunities for all.
    But is it really equal?
    Children in low decal schools are less likely to gain university entrance
    Maori and Pacifica students are under achieving, why is this if it is meant to be equal opportunities for all?
