What would The School of Life teach?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The National Party introduced their policy called 'teaching the basics brilliantly' last year regarding changing school curriculums. They are referring to reading, writing and maths.

Type 'Not For Print' if you wish your comments to be excluded from the Conversations column of your local paper.
