1:15 Education Act Review - John Gerritsen

The government is overhauling the Education Act and some of the changes it's suggesting could have a big impact. It's proposing rewards for good schools and new sanctions for those that are doing badly; defining what education is actually for; and making it easier for one board of trustees to run more than one school. It's even suggested an end to the New Zealand tradition of five-year-olds starting school on their birthday.

3:10 Mindfulness - Catherine Wikholm

Mindfulness and other forms of meditation are supposed to reduce stress, depression and anxiety. And for millions of people who practice these rituals, they do. But there is a dark side to meditation that is rarely considered according to Oxford Psychologists Dr Miguel Farias and Dr Catherine Wikholm. They warn consumers to be careful not to swallow all the hyperbole about meditation. Their new books is called The Buddha Pill: Can Meditation Change You?  It examines 45 years of clinical studies and reveals some cases with disturbing consequences from meditating.
