Authored by Government of Jersey on behalf of the States Greffe and published on 26 October 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Plesae provide a copy of a report from the States of Jersey Education Committee dated c January 1958. The source of the reference is the Evening Post dated 10 January 1958. It was a review prompted by a petition from the Roman Catholic Church concerning religious instruction in local schools, but probably was a broader review of the issue. The EP states it is 142 pages in length plus appendices and that it contains a review of education in Jersey since 1912.
The information requested is accessible to the requester by other means and is therefore exempt from release.
A copy of the report is open to public access and can be viewed at the Jersey Archive. The reference number is C/A6/49 - Projets de Loi, 1957.
The Archive have noted that the debate appears to have continued into 1958, so the requester may wish to view C/A6/50 Projets de Loi, 1958 as well.
The requester can contact the Jersey Archive directly to make arrangements to view the file. Their contact details are below:
