Norman LaRocqueSeptember 2002
“The government should stop funding PTEs in the upcoming budget and redirect the funds into universities, polytechnics, wananga and colleges of education.”
- Andrew Campbell, NZUSA
“The Association is gravely concerned at the general move to government policies that support private provision of tertiary education, including: increased government support for private training establishments [PTEs].”].”
- AUS Policy Statement
“Pasikale and Yaw (1998) point out the value of [PTEs] in offering a culturally welcoming environment for learners, many of whom had predominantly negative experiences in schools.”
- Cited in Literature Review on Pacific Education Issues: Final Report, Ministry of Education January 2002.
“Universities often have a very staid and formal image to young people, whereas PTEs have the scope to be more flexible and creative and capture the imagination of our kids.”
-- Dr Melani Anae
