truancy officers are in schools
The Ministry of Education has admitted it doesn’t know how many truancy officers are in schools or how much money is being spent on them, according to a written parliamentary question.
Critics say it’s not good enough.
“It is astonishing that the Ministry of Education does not know how many attendance officers there are in New Zealand,” National MP Erica Stanford said.
“It goes without saying that this is something the ministry needs to be keeping data on.”
