The principal of Turakina Māori Girls College is angry the Education Ministry has imposed a statutory manager on the school.

Terehia Channings says Carol Lynch was put into the school because the Education Review Office visited last year and found that there was not a full board in place, and there were also questions about its financial stability.

She says those issues have been resolved, and all the school requested was a special advisor to help new board members understand their role.

She says the ministry has been heavy-handed.

The school has 85 pupils, and Ms Channings says there are no issues with academic performance or the day to day running of the school that would require outside intervention.

I find Mrs Channings remarks' on your radio, negative, contradictory and comes across as "two-faced" - as she gives a more positive and diplomatic response on Radio NZ to the current issue with her College. See this URL http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/129732/crown-takes-control-of-maori-boarding-school. Besides, Mrs Channings has had over FOUR YEARS' to FIX her school's problems' see URL http://www.wanganuichronicle.co.nz/news/principal-restores-pride-school/1571088/. What is the Govt meant to do?......... wait another four years until the school turns to custard - like what happen to those arrogant Tangiwetos' from Tipene Kura? Mrs Channings' & her school should be thankful that the Govt have not put them to the sword because of their circumstance - like the MORE productive schools' closing in Christchurch!

Why proclaiming Key as the Politician of the Year is ethically bankrupt
OPINION: It is that time of year when pundits write columns to explain the 'winners' and 'losers' of the political year and already many are proclaiming that Key is this years political winner because he managed to avoid all the allegations of corruption and dirty politics to win an even larger majority than he had.
