Radio NZ interview on supporting ‘at risk’ school students

YouthLaw Aotearoa solicitor and Heidi Hayward join Radio NZ for a conversation about what more needs to be done to support ‘at risk’ school students.

Dunedin principal¬†Heidi Hayward¬†created a huge stir late last month when she wrote an open letter to four government ministers highlighting areas of deep concern. She says she wrote the letter out of a sense of “hopelessness”, claiming some of her pupils are living in homes where drugs are used and dealt.
