Today on Kerre McIvor Mornings: Is it time to change the school model? The current school structure doesn't suit everyone; Will anti-vaxxers get their head out of the sand?; And the cost of living in this country after moving back from overseas.

McIvor, a journalist, author and Herald on Sunday columnist, has taken over in Newstalk ZB's 9am-midday slot from Leighton Smith, who had reigned in the coveted time slot for 32 years before stepping down at the end of last year.
