Poll: Should parents be fined if their children drop out of school?

Neighbourly.co.nz

The National Party is considering a policy of fining parents $3000 if their children drop out of school and don't enter further education or training.

Simon Bridges says "The reality is if you're not in work, education or training, you're going to be languishing in a dole queue, and the evidence is potentially for a long time". Do you agree with this policy? Should parents be fined?

Office reception desk

Ben from Tamatea

I've just recently signed a lease agreement in hastings for my small business. Its a big step and leap of confidence. Scary for me thinking forwards!!

I teach Taekwon-Do throughout the Hawkes bay for special needs and mainstream at schools and places.

Im wanting to ask anyone who might want to give away or a good price office desk or any seating suitable for my brand new location im expanding to on king street, close to cru bar and level 1 in hastings.

Id appreciate any support as im doing this for my members as previous location began to get too small.

Hope to hear soon :)

Thanks
