    And fuck those rich white people who actually built the school, the city, and everything else I use to make my life more comfortable with too!

    At least the Americans have the option of shipping them home if they are unhappy, we however…

    I know it’s best for my kids not to be taught by her for a start.

  • Whafe

    I do know that a child brungded up by her will have a poor diet and the childs learning ability will be at a disadvantage from day one…. Eat healthy Karen Lewis and your children will learn better…..

    “When will we address the fact that rich, white people think they know what’s in the best interest of children”

    When it turns out they were wrong seems the obvious answer but currently there does not seem to be a compelling case to suggest that they are, while there seems a very compelling case that “poor black people” (the inverse of her statement, not racism) need some assistance in decision making cause it ain’t going that well for the currently.

    Things not going as well as you expect – play the race card. Tried & tested method of getting the softcock hand wringers to bend over.

    Naah – not Helen Kelly – really ?

  • Never in the dark…..

    “Rich, white people” like this guy http://www.ted.com/speakers/geoffrey_canada.html

    In fact I think he should be mandatory viewing for much of our teaching system.

    If we had left human beings development and prosperity to this lot over the last 600 years, it would be wood for the tree’s, just look at the current lot in Nigeria, Congo Cameroon etc….

    Just looking at her neck has put me off lunch. In the interest of weight loss I decided to share this sad moment

    Blubbergeddon Motivational? – or more UN / Wallmart people?

    Best outcome. The state will donate this 200 acre compound, there are existing buildings. The state will allow $500K for you to further develop this, and another $250K for books and educational amenities. Now F… O….. there and make it work, there will be no more handouts, no subsidies, and you must meet national standards. Either that, or Sit down, Shut up, and get a real job.

    Only wish a previous government gave the ancestors of the parties to the treaty, say half of northland and east cape, and left them to their own devices.

  • johnbronkhorst

    Does she not see how racist that statement is? In education, 1+1 will still equal 2 no matter who you are (figured that out yet hipkins?)

    Unshaven – shocking – women should shave

    She’s right. They’re called left-leaning liberals. Her enablers.
