CPAG invites you to attend our latest Auckland report launch of "Laybying our future: The state of student hardship in New Zealand"
The report is written by Master’s student Max Lin, and takes a look at the challenges faced by tertiary students today.
While the primary focus of CPAG is on children under 18 who are living below the poverty line, we know that childhood poverty can have an effect on educational outcomes in later life, and can impact upon those who strive to obtain higher qualifications. Some tertiary students are also parents of young children, so it is important to consider how a range of student groups can be disadvantaged by current policies.
