Should parents be charged if their kids wag school?

The team Reporter from Taranaki Daily News

Hi neighbours - a teen who refused to go to school has cost his parents after they were charged $50 under the Education Act.

The court heard that over a period of 62 school days, the teen was unjustifiably absent on 38 days, with a further seven classified as justified absence.

What are your thoughts? Should parents be charged if their kids wag school?

Fix our ROADS

Karl from Spotswood

Can anyone tell me when the NPDC is going “FIX OUR ROADS” Especially on the truck routes!
While driving around my little town, I notice streets with sections full of roadwork signs and cones, but there’s no apparent work being done so why are these road cones and signs left behind. Then there’s potholes with no signage or cones.
And can someone please let me know what is happening with the stadium?
