It would appear from reports that there is conflict between the Head Teacher of the local school and some of the populace of CP.
Either they are unwilling to get their children to school on time or she is overly disciplinarian in her approach.
Lets hope the truth outs.
I've never been there. Isn't that the place where they all live in homes in holes underground?
Perhaps the council could build tunnels from the homes to the school.

Several families have threatened to leave Coober Pedy if Sue Burtenshaw persists with her tough disciplinary approach at the school.
The complaints include verbal abuse of locals as "hillbillies" and "rednecks", and handing out detentions to students less than 10 minutes late to morning roll-call.
Coober Pedy Mayor Steve Baines called for residents to cease hostilities and "reflect on what's best for the children".
