Educating Australia: Government, Economy and Citizen Since 1960
This is the first comprehensive history of the Australian education systems, programs and policies in the period since 1960. The book draws on economic and sociological data, key texts and political events, anecdotes and a review of other analyses to build a picture of the role of education programs in the modernization of Australian life. It examines the implications of change for the labor market and the economy, in social policies and in cultural life. An important focus of the book is the discussion of the extension of citizenship through education.
