National Standards are only an improvement when the previous was Regional Standards. National Standards are a regression when the previous was International.

Sensible thing in the paper:

We will invest in developing a National Standard for Maaori Dance (or whatever) to be taught in Secondary Schools.

We will stop trying to develop National Standard for Art History and Latin and so on.

Our Universities have been disregarding the reports of examiners -- particularly the reports of examiners outside NZ. At least 1 examiner on higher research Degrees is supposed to be appointed from outside Australasia.

Mine was sent to a Canadian.

They retain my intellectual property. The thesis that was physically posted to them was retained by them to signify that they had accepted it. They didn't reject it / return post it to the student with instructions to re-enrol and keep working and try another submission to examiners again in 6 months.

And the examiners watch as Waikato dithers about. Takes all the time there is and then some. Takes as much time as they can. Then fails the student.

Apparently one single typographical error means the Dean has the authority to pronounce that hte thesis is unacceptable in it's present state and therefore has been failed.

THey think they are clever. They go a = pass and everything else from b-e = fail. Strictly.

YOu know, unless you offer bl*w j*bs to the Dean (or whatever metaphoric equivalent).

The Dean chooses to grant you mercy.

If you are on your best behavior. Over the maximum amount of time they can obtain fees from you.

Nasty people.
