i said to you " i am qualified to design and deliver third year physics tests at university level...so what?"
Oh wow, my memory of your lying has failed me. Not that what you're claiming is any less a work of hilarious fiction.
Where's your PhD in Physics then Adam? Do you even know the subject matter that would be in those tests?

Ahahahaha yeah right. Oh can I be some Maori fraud who took 9 years to become a primary school teacher?

I have to say; this really reveals what an insecure little cretin you must be thinking it's all about you personally. That's basically you Maoris to a T isn't it? Comparing yourselves to others all the time...

Oh, aren't you lucky. You have 'someone' to 'prove' that you don't have schizophrenia. Pity that 'he' only appears when you (Mark, Tweeter, Must_be_joking_me) seem to be getting picked on, and losing all credibility in a discussion. Hmmmmmm?

Rather than accept someone putting you straight, you assume they're picking sides and going against you.

Stop being a dick.

Maybe if you did, you'd have noticed I post plenty on here.

No. No I didn't. I looked his qualifications up on my own volition and posted that I had verified them, unlike you, he wasn't lying about having a university education. I never invited you to do the same thing. Mark, you're an idiot.

"It is now firmly established that a boy attending school regularly is much less likely to become involved in crime, even if he is not achieving academically."
"And that absence from school is closely linked to offending. It is important, therefore, for schools to have alternatives to suspension and expulsion. "
"The latest figures also reflect the input of the Ministry of Education, which has been working with schools with the highest expulsion rates to reduce these, especially for Maori and Pasifika pupils."
we have to make sure our schools cater for a diverse range of interests and options. a good school should be able to offer everything from trades courses and university degrees.
gone are the days where people had very limited, compulsory options. let's face it, not everyone wants to be a mathematician or a rocket scientist. some people like outdoors jobs and fixing cars, looking after people or sport....
