2014 – Present
Anne initiated and Gaze funded the Audit on all for-profit educational programmes in New Zealand.
Anne identified the need for this audit for the benefit of all schools and parents – the global ‘cognitive industry’ is a $5b+ pa industry growing exponentially each year, taking $176m pa from NZ schools and families alone. This global industry is completely unregulated and many false claims of research cannot be challenged as peer-reviews and published works are often only accessible to those in university research. If these published works do get sighted, an academic ‘eye’ is needed as these documents are not easily understood by those not in the scientific arena. Schools and fragile parents were handing over huge amounts of money annually to scams. Many programmes were proven to be without research or peer reviews and through this audit, are now exposed.
