Hot as hot as hot

In real terms, it has never ever been cold in Darwin. it is also very hot around the Northern Territory. It is so hot in many places the children cannot go to school. It may well be that the high rates of absenteeism and remote area schools is due to the fact that it is always so hot.

In those remote schools, school administrators often leave it to the community to fix the problem.That means that absenteeism rates are high and statistics on school attendance abysmally low. The problem can be fixed of course but that would take effort and often that effort is not applied. It is far easier just to let the children and the students run loose in the community, and it sure takes a fair bit out of the effort of having to teach.
