    A History of Australian Schooling
    A History of Australian Schooling
    At a time when schooling is more important than ever for families, and where there is great public concern about educational standards and outcomes, Craig Campbell and Helen Proctor show what is new and what is an echo of older agendas. They offer a comprehensive history of Australian schooling from colonial days to the present, highlighting the ways in which schooling has helped shape society. They identify distinctive features of the Australian education system: the strength of the non - government sector, the experiences of Indigenous children, and the relationship with global trends. From the bush to the burgeoning cities, they consider the impact of schools on children and young people over the decades. A History of Australian Schooling is an invaluable resource for anyone involved with Australian schools. 'This unconventional and vibrant history of Australian schools and schooling reads like a fine biography. Landmarks and turning points are interwoven with the pedagogic, social and political shifts that have shaped today's school system. ' - Lyndsay Connors, AM FACE 'a compelling account of public and private provision, one that speaks directly to the current debate' - Professor Stuart Macintyre, University of Melbourne 'a comprehensive, insightful and engaging study of the power of schooling over two centuries' - Dr Paul Kilvert, former Chief Executive, South Australian Certificate of Education Board
