RELEASE FROM FORCES
THE POSITION OF TEACHERS
"MEASURES NOW IN TRAIN"
The opinion that it was nationally wrong to keep teachers in the armed forces one moment longer than was absolutely necessary, was expressed by Mr. G. K. Hamilton, chairman of the Auckland Education Board a; a meeting of the board to-day, when advice was received from Ihe Director of Education that Ihe National Service Department had intimated that more comprehensive measures for the release of teachers not required for overseas service were now in train. The chairman said it should be pointed out that in view of wellsubstantiated reports that the Air Force? was overstaffed and there was considerable wasting of time, it was difficult to reconcile the delay in discharging servicemen who were needed for schools. The board agreed to make further representations for the release of teachers. The letter from the Director of the National Service Department pointed out that it was the policy strongly to support requests for the. release of teachers. The majority of teachers were engaged in the educational or meteorological branches of the Services and he did not feel competent to recommend releases generally, irrespective of the nature of their duties.
