Chris Hipkins on new rules for physical restraint in schools

From Morning Report, 8:13 am on 3 December 2019

New rules for the use of physical restraint in schools are on the way.

Changes make it clear that physical force can be used, as a last resort, to keep students safe from harm. The measures are part of the Education and Training Bill 2019, introduced in Parliament yesterday.

Chris Hipkins is Minister of Education.
