GUEST BLOG: Donna Awatere Huata – Secondary Principals Council must not punish climate change striking students

By   /  March 12, 2019  /  Guest Blogs + Sponsored Posts, Most Recent Blogs  /  31 Comments

It would seem to me to be incongruent in the extreme to punish students for having a social conscience on what is the most urgent issue of our times.

MUST READ GUEST BLOG: Donna Awatere Huata – Is Jacinda’s ‘Nuclear-free moment’ on climate change nothing more than a bumper sticker?

Our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, stated that climate change was her generations ‘nuclear-free moment’, yet when we consider actual environmental policy to date, we can conclude that this ‘moment’ is little more than a feel good nuclear free bumper sticker.
