Joe Nunweek

Tell you What 2016 is a new collection of New Zealand non-fiction from some of our best journalists, essayists and bloggers.

Joe Nunweek's essay '3 Boys' is inspired by his first-hand observations of the expulsion process in New Zealand schools. He talks with Noelle McCarthy about how troubled youngsters are dealt with in our education system.

"Where once we treated these students as mad, bad & dangerous to know, now we have a better idea of their triggers."
