Somewhere in New Zealand is a building. It’s not signposted and it most likely looks like any other building in any other town or city.
The only difference is what this building contains.
This building contains all the stupid ideas that humanity has ever come up with in the last 100,000 years or so. It’s quite a big building, because there are so many stupid ideas that have been collected; filed; and lovingly stored. There is practically a stupid idea for every occassion.
This is the building where National and ACT Ministers go to get their next big, “bright”, idea.
This is where John Banks, along with Hekia Parata, went in search of the lunatic concept that is known as “Charter Schools”. It was stored in a little shoe-box, labelled,
“Dumb and Dumber – how to Dumb Down Your Child Using Taxpayer’s Money
Stupid Idea #2,717,990: Charter Schools”
