There is no evidence Modern learning classrooms are effective.

That is according to research by think tank The New Zealand Initiative that has found the Education Ministry's classroom experiment has not been based on evidence.

The ministry has been unable to provide data on the number of learning environments, their cost and effectiveness.

Senior Fellow Dr Michael Johnston told Kate Hawkesby the Ministry didn't research the effect these environments would have on students’ learning before forcing schools to adopt them.

He says there's been a complete lack of information of its effectiveness before and after it was implemented.
