FAMILY MATTERS: Bridging the education gap

Family First’s Simon O’Connor sits down and chats with Mark Bridges (yes – his brother in law!) about education in New Zealand. Mark is a school principal with many years of experience, both here and overseas. He discusses the values of structured literacy as well as how reading at home and a supportive family environment can make substantial difference in a child’s development. They also discuss wider changes that would help improve the situation for young learners and their families.
