    Overcrowding in school may be a factor in a student achieving NCEA

    Overcrowding in school may be a factor in a student achieving NCEA


    Canterbury researchers claim extra time in the early years at school can make up to 40 per cent difference at level 3 NCEA .

    Children born in the first half of the year get up to 6 months more time in early education at school.

    Neuroscience educator Nathan Wallis says many schools move students before they're ready - to make space in new-entrant classes.
