TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

------------


Keith Rankin: Election Hits Top Of Economic Cycle

- The economy doesn't rate as much of an issue this election. OK, there are the usual concerns about health and education spending. But there is no sense of economic crisis, and no great willingness to engage in a philosophical debate about matters of political economy. See... Keith Rankin: Good Timing [1]

[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0207/S00127.htm


Survey Damning Of NCEA

- Mr Mallard and NZQA would have you believe that all you need to do is apply “professional judgement” as to what level a student falls with in. The reality is that the achievement standards have many unquantifiable terms such as “enough”, “more than”, and some. See... NCEA Nation-wide Teaching Staff Survey 2002 [1] REACTION: - Richard Prebble - The Solution Must Be To Scrap NCEA [2] - Trevor Mallard - Minister Casts Doubt On Survey [3] - Nick Smith - Survey Confirms NCEA Debacle [4]

Corn Wars: Russell Poulter Vs. Peter R. Wills

- Dear Sir, I am delighted that this nonsense is disappearing from the media allowing other more important issues to be considered prior to the election. However, more in sorrow than in anger, I note Dr. Wills continues to publish innuendo concerning me. May I exercise my right of reply, I hope for the last time. See... Dr Russell Poulter - Re: Corn Wars [1] and Industry may be holding proof of contamination [2]

10-Month Crime Stats Release Flatters To Deceive

[3] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00487.htm


Alliance Meltdown Viewed From The Hard Left

- The article concludes, "The politics of social democratic 'realism' have yet again proven to be unrealistic for achieving any real and meaningful social change. . . an immense amount of energy has been wasted . . . Imagine if the same energy had been put into serious left-wing extra-parliamentary political activity." See... Alliance meltdown [1]
