John Campbell will be really excited now, being able to carry the Christchurch thing on even longer. He feeds on this and gets everyone riled up, yet again. Boring Boring. Come on Christchurch look at the glass half full instead of half empty. Change can be good.

Hi there, can someone please tell me the last name of the guy Matt that was trying to get official information for Ouruia School.
I would like to ring him even though I don't have a child at the schools being closed, I would like to stand behind him and fight for our Official Information act that I feel is being sodomised here.

@ Linda, I too am concerned for the special school closure that puts children with special needs into mainstream. Its not going to work unless each child has a teacher assigned to them and this govt is not going to fund that. I fail to see how it can be stopped unless legal action is mounted and because it is only a smaller percentage of children is probably not an issue to this govt. Parents have an expectation that their children are safe and taught to the best of their ability. Unfortunately this govt does not. I thought there was a law somewhere that said the same but once again you would need to speak to a lawyer. It really smacks of a human rights abuse to me.

@ERM : Sure, but view the video again. There are yet so many unknown matters in flux such as the projected increase in suburbs and hence population. The ministry's data is demonstrably so widely off the market. The minister doesn't seem to have a sensible trustworthy clue other than parroting spins. Waiting for one or preferably two more years for things to settle before making costly and foolish decisions in haste now is a much more sensible choice.

Yes, it IS too early and hasty. The government, Key, English and Parota have not much clue or foresight. They should wait for a year or two to make sensible fair decisions along with the views of the local people. Closing schools now is like burying half alive suffering people live.
