Stop the witch hunt on Principal B.B Isaacs

This petition is in aid of a principal who has served the WCED and his school for more than 30 years. Mr Brian Isaacs has had many previous altercations with the WCED.  But with the ever changing Department, it has come to a point where Mr Isaacs has been brought up on random nonsensical charges during the year. This has kept him out of school, thus reducing the amount of time he is able to spend in the classroom, teaching, or just being at the school, as its leader. Please support a man who be

Raising the drinking age back to 20.

I’m currently studying about Alcohol Harm in New Zealand and possible law changes.

Raising the drinking age to 20 years of age.

Help me help make the community we live in today become a much more safer environment by raising the drinking age up to 20 years of age. It is time for us to make a stand and make the right choices by creating a more stable community for our teenagers. I believe this will only be successful if we all join in together and stop the alcohol harm in New Zealand and the damage that it is causing.    If you agree with raising the drinking age from 18 up to 20 years of age please sign below. Thank you.
