Project Overview

The focus of this review is on the criteria and process for the registration and deregistration of private schools under section 35A of the Education Act 1989; the role of ERO in assessing and reviewing schools against those criteria; legislative duties on private schools; and the sanctions available to the Ministry of Education where duties are breached. The Law Commission published an issues paper in November 2008 and a final report in September 2009.
