Should parents be charged if their kids wag school?

The team Reporter from Bay 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?

Being Kiwi: Have you experienced racism?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

New Zealand is renowned for being friendly and welcoming but is that true for everyone?

Stuff is asking readers to share their experiences of racism by taking part in this short survey.

Being Kiwi is a project looking at the experiences of life in New Zealand for people of all cultures. It calls for the collection of official statistics on hate crimes, looks at discrimination in our schools and takes a stroll through Auckland, now one of the most diverse cities in the world.
