‘The real school bully isn’t in the schoolyard’

 
Without provocation, the Government has forced Wainuiomata Christian College to disclose its disciplinary policies or face closure. Martin
Keast, principal of Wainuiomata Christian College and Silverstream Christian School has reluctantly complied with the demand but states,
‘we do so under threat.’ In response to Mr Keast’s comments, Education Minister Steve Maharey, says: "The law is the law.’ Now lets take the
anti smacking bill. If this bill is passed, what will stop the Government (without any provocation) demanding from ordinary, law-abiding kiwi parents the same disclosure of their disciplinary measures in the home? After all, ‘the law is the law!’ Government’s planned national database to monitor all New Zealand children provides the framework to make this scenario a reality.
 
To that end, a mass gathering at Parliament Grounds will take place next week – Wednesday 2nd May at 12.30pm to oppose the anti-smacking bill.  Speakers include Bishop Brian Tamaki, Pastor Peter Mortlock, Wellington Reverend Mike Weitenburg and former All Black and Wellington Hurricanes Captain Bull Allen.
