Compliance with s162 Education Act 1964

Alex Harris made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

The request was successful.

From: Alex Harris

Dear Ministry of Education,

Back in 1921, the government of New Zealand required all teachers to make an affirmation of allegiance. This law is still on the books today as s162 Education Act 1964, and I am interested in investigating how it is complied with. I would therefore like to request the following information under the Official Information Act 1982:

* How is s162 Education Act 1964 enforced? How is it monitored? Does the Ministry centralise the oversight of such affirmations of allegiance, or does it leave it to individual schools?

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.

With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
