by Keating, Jack.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Education Foundation 2009Description: iv,56 p. : col., table. PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Education Foundation, a division of the Foundation for Young Australians. Summary: This paper presents an argument and a proposed strategy for structural reforms in Australian schooling. It notes that while many aspects of Australian schooling are strong, some measures do not consistently indicate optimum performance, and there are signs that overall performance is weakening in comparison to the performances of the school systems in other economically advanced countries. In particular, combinations of trends in social geography and selectivity in schooling are leading to high concentrations of students with high levels of educational need. This has negative implications for the common national goal of higher levels of education and skills across the Australian community and Australia’s tradition of equality of opportunity in education or what the Ministerial Council for Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA) (2008a) terms the ‘common good.Availability: (1)
