Parents should not have to pay for ECE. 2 years 1 month ago #21

Is our ECE going to be continually modelled on charity or business? NZ education is a bit of both but hopefully not so much in that competitive sense of businesses. Education is a universal right in NZ for Primary and Secondary so why not for little children. NZ has been so lucky to have all these organisations doing ECE on the behalf of the Government. They have filled the gap where Government has refused to go. Parents should not have to pay for ECE. if NZ society needs both parents to work to survive. ECE is as good as compulsory if targets of 98% are set by Government.
