From: john luke

Dear Ministry of Education,

I noted on your website,
"New complaint and disputes resolution panels

The Act supports the setting up of local complaint and dispute panels to hear serious disputes you might have about your child’s education with your school or kura.

Students, parents, families, whānau and carers will be able to refer serious matters to these panels for review. The panels will have mediation, recommendation and decision-making functions. They will hear disputes relating to decisions made by school boards concerning:
•rights to education (including enrolment and attendance)
•stand-downs, suspensions, exclusions and expulsions
•learning support, racism and other types of discrimination
•physical and emotional safety and
•physical restraint of a student by a teacher or other authorised employee

Can you please let me know what is the timeframe of setting up this new complaint and disputes resolution panels. How many panel you going to established and where are they? When you plan to call for public applications and what is the term of reference of these panel, what would be the pay rate for it's members and their job descriptions.

Also, can you please provide some additional information around the panel and how it works and how it going to operate and it's process.

Yours faithfully,

john luke
