I took this from todays (14/11/2009) bay of Plenty Times. If you want to read the entire article you will find it on their website.

"Nynette Martin, who manages Impact Tauranga, a residential care programme for young women and an alternative school for teenagers, backed up the trend. She said one of the reasons some of the girls were at the alternative school was that they had been kicked out of mainstream school for anti-social behaviour.

"They are not afraid to be violent if they need to be," she said.

Education Ministry figures show a 41 per cent increase in girls being stood down, suspended or kicked out of school for assaults between 2002 and 2006. Police statistics show girls make up 30 per cent of the under 17 youth that come to their attention for violent offending - paralleling boys.

A report from the Office of the Children's Commissioner revealed bullying rates at New Zealand schools are more than 50 per cent above the international average."

What an upbeat post that one was from what is no doubt an extensive list of gloomy articles for just this occasion.

Anyway, take a look at http://www.ero.govt.nz/ero/publishin...tent/Home+Page and it should help you arrive at your own conclusion.

Remuera is considered one of the more exclusive areas, and you may pay a significant amount more for a house in zone for one of the better schools in that area.
