A Tale of Two Schools…

two schools

.

Two stories which appeared almost side-by-side on RNZ’s website.

Parent, Miranda Cross, was quoted as saying;

“I think the expectations are that we can at least send our kids to school where they will receive an education.”

An American parent would probably demand;

“I think the expectations are that we can at least send our kids to school where they will survive the day and come home alive.”

It’s not a bad country to live in when the most toxic thing that could potentially harm our kids is mould – whereas the United States has bullets flying.

But what else can we expect from a nation that is at perpetual war with itself?
