Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends clauses 12 and 14 in the Education Amendment Bill to increase student representation on tertiary and polytechnic councils from “at least 1” to “at least 2”. This is to guarantee greater democratic representation, balanced decision making, and to reflect the strong will of a majority of submitters on this issue during the select committee process.
