"The New Zealand education system is broken and we need to start fixing it today if we want to have a prosperous future tomorrow."

Bryan Bruce was a teacher for 10 years before he become an award winning documentary maker. He believes the switch to self-managing schools has proved a disaster for children living in poorer areas of our country, that the way we administer our public schools is getting in the way of teachers doing their job and that to produce creative young thinkers from our schools we need to radically change the way we assess the talents and abilities of our children.

What is the purpose of public education? Are we teaching our children in the way that will best prepare them for a future that no one can predict?
