In 1983 the Australian Commonwealth Government announced its new Participation and Equity Program (PEP). To allow schools to focus on new directions, substantial amounts of money were allocated to the states through the PEP so that they could develop programs that focus on nine major areas: (1) curriculum; (2) assessment, accreditation, and credentialling; (3) teacher/student/parent interaction; (4) teacher renewal and support; (5) school structure and organization; (6) post-link schools; (7) groups with special needs; (8) public support for education; and (9) education and the arts. This document describes some of the major concerns of PEP, examples of how individual schools have met these concerns, and 10 different programs implemented in individual Tasmanian schools. (EJS)
