The Learning Auckland leadership table was fortunate to host Lisa Rodgers, Deputy Secretary for Evidence, Data and Knowledge at the Ministry of Education, in August 2015. Lisa gave us a detailed presentation on the cradle to career pathway for young people in Auckland, to inform our planning for future Learning Auckland actions.
Lisa and her team had conducted analyses specifically for this session, around the Learning Auckland measures, so the presentation included data that is not easily available from other sources. The data gave us a rich picture of what is happening for Māori, Pasifika and new Aucklanders and the MOE’s insights about the choke points – where children and young people are not currently successful.
In order to bring wider viewpoints to the discussion around the data, the leadership table extended an invitation to members of the Tāmaki Makaurau Education Forum and RAISE Pasifika. Lisa’s presentation was followed by a rich question and discussion time, and we will be collating questions and comments from participants and passing these on to Lisa for further data requests, and to the leadership table as they plan their next steps.
