Education and Change in South Australia. First Report.
Committee of Enquiry into Education in South Australia, Adelaide.
This publication contains the first report of the Committee of Enquiry into Education in South Australia, the major task of which is to examine and make recommendations to the Minister of Education on the educational system of South Australia. The committee emphasized that there was no need for radical changes in the educational system at this time nor during the next decade. Its recommendations were essentially those for planned development in certain areas. The committee also saw a number of issues and problems confronting those responsible for the provision of education in the state. The report begins with a summary of recommendations. Seventeen sections follow. They cover the following topics: background information on the purpose of the committee; a historical comment; the future, including a discussion of demographic and economic trends, technological developments, social changes, family structures, and ethnic backgrounds; purposes and perspectives of the educational system; educational planning and policies; regionalization of educational services; early childhood services; the education department as an organization; technical and further education; the upper secondary school; the year 12 examination; the nongovernment schools; educating for leisure; a commitment to youth; the teaching service; and the management of resources. The last section contains further considerations for provision of education in South Australia. (RM)
