    Default 2014 deadline for education to age 18

    Clark sets 2014 deadline for education to age 18
    11:00AM Friday Sep 19, 2008

    All under-18-year-olds would have to be in some form of education or training from 2014 under Labour policy released by Prime Minister Helen Clark today.

    Helen Clark was announcing some of the details of the Government's Schools Plus programme, which she outlined in general form for the first time in January.

    Schools Plus is the Government's plan to have every youth in some form of training until the age of 18.

    That would mean youths who left school would have to either go into other training, or if they took up a job would have to do that in conjunction with some form of apprenticeship or qualification.

    Labour's attempt to spend more of your tax dollars to buy votes. I think the national government will bag it. Don't look for this one to last.
