Gloriavale working within the law - ERO

There'll be no investigation into the education system at secluded West Coast sect Gloriavale.

Officials from the Education Review Office have told a closed select committee at Parliament that the community is working within the law.

But Green MP Catherine Delahunty says it's totally unacceptable that Gloriavale is allowed to teach girls how to do laundry.

"My concern is about the students getting the opportunity to have a broad education and have their human rights upheld rather than just be in a very limited world which doesn’t assist them if they want to leave this cult," she says.

Gloriavale's school gets $200,000 worth of taxpayer funding annually.
