Is funding going up Jan 1st if you are 100% qualified staff?

Is that correct that Kohonga Reo are funded more than ECE. My understanding is that they are quite a bit lower than ECE?
Kohonga are significantly lower standards - next year at the highest Kohonga funding rate they will be 2% higher than us. Positive discrimination 😉

yes funding is going up next year. We sit around 95% fully qualified as the ratio drops over lunch. The increase to get 100% is less than the extra cost of extra staff for us.

Thats what happens when your a evil private business...

Tuesday I was listening to the radio and there were discussions that Treasury had warned the government that they needed to raise taxes or cut services. They wouldn't be able to rely on the economy bouncing back quickly from coivd and trading off the back of that growth. The next day reports from Treasury are the opposite.

I know things are pretty fluid right now but daily.

Think the key mitigating factor is that the govt have bought it for housing .

From what I understand, the govt (us) pays for it, the Council administer and maintain it and the King looks after the cultural aspects including the sacred stones.

Good result for the Shelley Bay protesters.

This could open up big racial divisions in this country:

Māori Party co-leader Rawiri Waititi said the Ihumātao deal should be seen as "an important precedent" for the Crown addressing injustice by returning confiscated land to Māori outside of the Treaty settlement process.

"We know that there are many other 'Ihumātao' right around the country – sites of huge significance that mana whenua are fighting to have returned.

"It is the Māori Party position that no Treaty settlement is full and final if it is unjust, and that Treaty justice must mean the return of whenua Māori into the hands of whānau, hapū and iwi."

So in effect the money exchange went like this?

Fletchers buys the land from the Iwi for 30m. Govt buys it back from Fletchers for 30m.

What happens to the 30m the Iwi got, or has this just cost the taxpayer 60m?
Fletchers bought it for less. They had holding costs, opportunity costs etc. Good question though.
