The Government has stepped into one out of every seven schools to support struggling boards and principals over the past decade.

The Ministry of Education has intervened in 34 per cent of schools in the poorest decile, and at 20 per cent of schools in the next-poorest two deciles, since January 2009.

Intervention rates were lower at higher deciles, but the ministry still intervened in 7 per cent of schools even in the richest decile. Overall it has stepped into 367, or 14.5 per cent, of the country's 2531 schools.
