Funding threatens future of one-day school, Akoranga o Naenae

From Nine To Noon, 9:27 am on 10 June 2015

A new project to educate children who often fall between the cracks in mainstream schools faces an uncertain future. Lower Hutt teachers Kelly Layton, Clare Curry, and Natasha Furness started Akoranga o Naenae this year.

Their one-day school uses a method that puts children in the driving seat of their own learning, boosts self-esteem, and gives them a sense of place in the world.

Members of the school community join Kathryn Ryan in the Nine to Noon studio to talk about the school.
