Don't Feed Our Kids

So stoked the National Party decided not to feed kids at all low decile schools. Help only the kids that need it- a blanket hand out of food is just DUMB there are hundreds of Decile 1 schools with kids who are always are well fed. Schools arent social welfare agencies, those who cant afford to feed their kids need to seek help from the agencies, not their teachers.

At Punaruku School where we spent 5yrs, not one kid was short of a feed. Now they get fed breakfast! why? because do gooders decided the community didn't feed their kids. Bro don't demean our maori community by feeding everyone, use discretion feed 1 kid quietly if necessary and move on.

m learning progressions

On the back of my fellowship I thought that this might be useful to elearning nerds.
@macash and myself (@sumich) have helped string together this set of progressions based on the ACOT model from 1987 and the normal old inquiry traits that some schools use.
Hope you find it useful
