The education policy of the Labour Party was partially revealed by the Leader of the Opposition, Mr N. E. Kirk, at the university last night.
The basis of Labour education policy was one of believing that education freed people.
"It is the most important aspect of growth and development in New Zealand society."
Mr Kirk said special problems included pre-sohool children, Islanders, and the ever present problem that anybody on a low income had a smaller possibility of getting to university.
