Public private partnerships in education /

by Dunkin, Ruth | Brotherhood of St Laurence. Research and Policy Centre.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Social Inclusion and Corporate Responsibility Workshop Proceedings 21 November 2008Summary: All developed countries are seeking to improve their international competitiveness. As the nature of their competitive basis changes away from traditional manufacturing and agricultural industries to services and more sophisticated manufacturing and value-adding industries -knowledge-intensive - industries the perceived need for greater skills development and educational achievement levels has grown. Thus a key underpinning of international competitiveness for many countries is the competitiveness of their educational levels and in turn, their education systems. In many cases educational achievement levels have stalled in the wake of successful mass education programs in the last century and countries are seeking to reinvigorate educational growth. However they do so within a climate in which those countries are also facing major new challenges of economic and social adaptation and competing investment needs. As a result, different routes to educational investment are being sought and used. This paper will outline these, together with the major policy issues associated with them.Availability: (1)

National competition policy.

by Hilmer, Frederick G | Australia. Independent Committee of Inquiry.

Publisher: Canberra : Australian Government Publishing Service 1993Description: xxxix, 385 p. ; PDF.Other title: Hilmer report.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: August 1993; Chairman: Frederick G. Hilmer. Members: Mr Mark Rayner ; Geoffrey Taperell Secrotary: Mr Warrick SmithSummary: Australia is facing major challenges in reforming its economy to enhance national living standards and opportunities. There is the challenge of improving productivity, not only in producing more with less and deploying scarce assets wisely, but also in becoming better at making and exploiting new discoveries, whether in technology, resources, fashion or ideas. A possibly more difficult challenge is to develop in a Way that creates new jobs and growth rather than the economy shrinking to an efficient but diminishing core of activity. Coping with these challenges is an enormous task for any country, and Australia is not alone in finding the process. of reform testing and early benefits elusive, particularly when world economic growth is negligible. However, Australia faces an additional complexity in tackling these challenges, as most reforms require action by up to nine governments. This is particularly true in competition policy, an area central to micro-economic reform which aims at improvements at the front line of the economy. Availability: (1)
