Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools?

The team Reporter from Northern News

Hi neighbours - Jacinda Ardern has announced that all schools and kura would be expected, by 2022, to teach the country's history.

Curriculum changes would reset a national framework so that all learners and ākonga were aware of key aspects of New Zealand history and how they had influenced and shaped the nation.

What do you think? Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools, or are there other, more important subjects to teach?

What do you think about a load of uncovered dead calves?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

The Aucklander who saw the uncovered trailer said it was a "confronting sight - pretty gross". The driver did not appear to be breaking any laws but farming experts say the calves should've been covered for good taste. What do you think - is this just the reality of farming or should the public be protected from such sights?
