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!

Waitangi Tribunal ruling enshrines Treaty as a living document
OPINION: The most significant thing about the Waitangi Tribunal ruling last week that Maori did not sign away Tino Rangatiratanga in 1840 is that it has reset with immediacy the role of the Treaty into the modern day.
Local Politics
OPINION: John Key’s comment about advising the Chilean president that there was a Kiwi in her country, who she wouldn’t want to invite for lunch, went horribly wrong although it was intended as a joke.
Key on the right track
OPINION: The war against terrorism is a no win situation for Prime Minister John Key. He’s damned if he doesn’t do enough and damned if he does too much and goes over the top.
