Should communities have more control over schools?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Whangarei Leader

A former Northland principal says the education system is "broken" for Māori learners - and the way to fix this is hand power back to communities.

Keri Milne-Ihimaera was the principal of Moerewa School for 10 years, where the community was deeply involved in the school - until a statutory intervention by the Ministry of Education, she said.

She said change needed to come from the ground up and be supported by those at the top – not the other way round. Do you agree?

Ocular side-effects of Ibuprofen ( Vision )

Glen McMillan from Glen McMillan Okara Ward

I put a post up a couple of days ago saying I had given up ibuprofen for gout and was using red cherries instead. I believe my eyesight has suddenly improved particularly in reading subtitles on TV.
I have been doing some research and came across this detailed report from 1970. If you are taking ibuprofen you should read this. the link is below

I have to add I am running in our local elections in Okara Ward
