The Education Act 1989 has recently been repealed and replaced by the Education and Training Act 2020 (see http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/2020/0038/latest/LMS170676.html.) YouthLaw is in the process of updating this page to reflect the new law. Please be aware that the law, as stated on this webpage, may not be current.

YouthLaw has developed Youth Law 101: Rights Education Toolkit which is a series of interactive, short and relevant workshops for school leaders (year 13 prefects, head of house etc.) to deliver to students year 10 to year 13. You can download content from here or contact us for the hard copy version with the video DVD.
