Primary Education in Tasmania: A Review for the Education Department by the Committee on Primary Education.
Tasmanian Education Dept., Hobart (Australia).
This report is designed to highlight certain aspects of the growth and development of primary education in Tasmania which have specific implications for those concerned with the education of children. The report focuses on the needs of children during the primary school years and the crucial importance of appropriate learning experiences at this stage; identifies the level of resources necessary to provide the best quality education and confirms the high priority which educational research has convincingly demonstrated must be accorded to primary education if later developments are to occur. Five main sections are discussed: the purpose of primary schools in Tasmania; children's growth and development; the school in action (organization, programs and leadership); the primary school as part of the education department (principles, policies and prescriptions); and the school and its community.
