Howick College - Auckland
I would not recommend this school for people from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Judging by the criteria presented to me - a person from a poor school cannot even meet the criteria to their classes despite it being a legal right in the public school system to study where you live.
In addition it was difficult for me to ensure my human rights due to snobbery and the government's lack of resources.
In view of Howick College there are many admission & elitist prejudices which are based on my prior schools imposed curriculum thus making it unfair to people from different demographics. In light of recent confirmation regarding PISA tests and Inequality.
As a result, upon arrival at Howick college to continue education in Piano and Science I was greatly at a disadvantage due to the mathematics curriculum imposed from Tamaki College due to a variety of factors & excuses.
Likewise there appears to be a double standard created by a Government task force which is also contradicting the NZQA reports.
