By Jody O’Callaghan – Stuff – 30/04/2015
A call to close Gloriavale’s school over concerns of oppression has been rejected by West Coast MP Damien O’Connor.
An educational researcher has criticised Gloriavale Christian Community School for depriving young people of their human rights, and said it should be closed.
Quality Public Education Coalition (QPEC) co-convenor Liz Gordon said she was concerned about oppression within the private school, which was government registered and funded $199,316 in 2014.
