Restructuring Australian Education and Revolutions in Central and Eastern Europe.
Offered as a guide to action in uncertain times, this paper reviews literature on Australian educational restructuring and recent revolutions in east central Europe. The questions asked in both sets of literature differ; however, those posed by the revolutions in eastern Europe have a more directional focus. The research questions posed by the eastern European literature are applied to an analysis of educational restructuring in Australia. The main argument contends that transformation, which lies at the core of the eastern central European social revolutions, is the key to contemporary politics of education. If Australian educational research is to act as a guide to action, an analysis of education in relation to social theory and to a sociology of transformation is necessary. Such research would both explain probable futures and postulate preferred futures toward which to work. (Contains 43 references.) (LMI)
