Education Sector Indicators
A set of education sector indicators has been developed to help assess and monitor the 'health' of education in New Zealand. The indicators focus on the outcomes of education and training, and the important influences on those outcomes.
Indicators assist us to identify key strengths and weaknesses in the education sector and monitor the progress, or lack of progress, being made towards key educational goals.
A fundamental principle of our approach to monitoring is that where an indicator is thought to be worthy of monitoring, it should be monitored by separate ethnic groups as well as the total population. Two-thirds of the indicators have information on Māori, including tables of information.
