ECT initially created a fixed-term position for an Education Change Agent to develop the report.
Lara Meyer spent 26 years teaching both primary and secondary students, and adult learners. She recently worked in Melbourne for the Australian Federal Government. Prior to that she worked as a Lead Facilitator for the Te Kotahitanga Programme in secondary schools in North and West Auckland. She also works for Evidence Based Educational Consulting Ltd, providing in-depth support for teachers and leaders of all levels across all curriculum areas.
ECT has now internalised the project, with key staff responsible for working with schools to prioritise and implement many of the recommendations of the report.
