Relief over class size backdown - National - NZ Herald News:

 "The Labour party and teachers union have expressed relief at the Government's backdown on class sizes.

Education Minister Hekia Parata announced at a press conference today her department had abandoned plans to save about $174 million over four years by changing the student-teacher ratios used for funding.
