The battle lines have been drawn and education is already shaping up to be a hot election issue this year. 

Education Minister Hekia Parata is joining us for a live chat, to answer your questions on new and ongoing changes within the education sector.

Last month, John Key announced one of National's flagship election policies - a $359 million education overhaul aimed at establishing four new teaching and principal roles.

Both unions and teachers welcomed the announcement, but it came after a year of more controversial issues such as school closures, National Standards and charter schools.

So how will this new policy keep our top teachers in classrooms? What is the Government's view on religious education in schools? Are charter schools really sapping up funds at the expense of students in state schools?
