Christian schools see advantanges in charter schools proposal

Christian school leaders say the proposed charter schools might give Christian schools a way round current restrictions on their enrolments.

Most Christian schools are integrated schools and must focus their enrolments on Christians. Charter schools would get the same funding, without those restrictions.

Christian school leaders say that will interest schools that want to help poor communities.

However, they also say the Government might be better off simply freeing up the regulations that govern integrated schools.

The New Zealand Association of Christian Schools is an association that seeks to foster the establishment and the well being of Christian schools in New Zealand

The membership consists of

  • Christian schools including Christian teacher training establishments
  • Organisations which serve Christian education
  • Individuals who are involved in Christian schools

There are currently about 60 full member schools and about another 25 with whom the association has occasional contact.
