Although successive governments claim to have improved the quality of secondary school education in New Zealand, today's parents are more anxious than ever about what may confront their teenagers when they start secondary school. Many parents are opting to enrol their children in out-of-zone schools for a variety of reasons, and many also send their children to private schools so that they can bypass the NCEA system. In What You Need to Know Before Your Child Starts Secondary School two educational experts (who are also parents) provide guidelines, advice and anecdotal stories covering everything parents need to know about New Zealand's secondary school system - how the different types of schools operate, what they are expected to provide to students, and what to do if communication between parents and the school breaks down. This is an essential directory of knowledge for every parent.
