The Currie Report, or the Report of the Commission on Education in New Zealand, which appeared in 1962, has been generating changes on a broad front within the New Zealand educational system throughout the last ten years. Eight areas of concern were identified by that Commission. The "most clamant" was the recruitment and training of teachers. Second was the need for improvements in teachers' conditions of service. Third, the Commission sought ways of further involving laymen in the control and management of schools by restructuring administration at the district level. Maori education was the fourth area of concern. Fifth, the Commission wished to see instituted some regular system of national assessment in the basic subjects along with a system of checks at certain points in children's progress throughout the system. Suggestions for a reorganization of the school system grew out of an examination of the sixth area of concern, while the seventh centered on obtaining a sounder legal basis for the admission of voluntary religious teachers into the schools and for daily religious observances. Finally, the Commission examined the important question of State aid to private schools. This report reviews the achievements of the last ten years. (Author/WM)
