Board of Teacher Education Act 1969 (No. 75 1969).
New South Wales (Australia).
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of the contents of the Board of Education Act of 1969 passed by the legislature of the Government of New South Wales, Australia. It provides for a Board of Teacher Education to consist of not less than 14 and not more than 27 members, and includes two to five representatives of bodies or institutions employing persons engaged in teaching in prescribed institutions. The make-up of the rest of the board is prescribed; all are appointed by the Governor, upon nomination by the Minister of Education. The Board will keep a register, to be called the Register of Teachers, of persons to be registered under the act. This Act gives the Board statutory powers that it previously only had in an advisory capacity, i.e., the responsibility for reviewing the professional preparation of teachers, relationships between teachers colleges and universities, evaluation of courses of study, and the provision of courses to improve teachers qualifications. The Board has been empowered by this Act to remove, suspend or caution a person according to the severity of the offense, if his behavior is deemed improper for a teacher. (Author/GDB)
