Aranui out in strength against school merger
Of all the communities most affected by the Ministry of Education's shake up of schools, none is more so than Aranui in the city's East.
All five schools in the Aranui cluster are expected to close. That's three primary, an intermediate and a secondary school.
What is the ministry's plan? Create one super campus for all.
But 96 percent of the community is saying "no" to the Government's plans.
So when the minister herself ventured out to Aranui schools, how was she received?
