Schools Commission: Report for the Triennium 1976-1978. A Look at Recent Documents of Educational Significance, Document 15.
Queensland Dept. of Education, Brisbane (Australia).
This commission report consists of the recommendations made for Australian schools regarding equality, open attitudes, and the school community. The School's Commission places an emphasis on more equal outcomes from schooling. Particular stress is laid on social group disparities and attempts to mitigate them, and on social changes and their effects on desired educational outcomes. It is asserted that the adaptation of educational arrangements to the needs of children in relation to desired outcomes from schooling is more effectively achieved with active community involvement. The commission recommends that the school or learning community be allowed maximum freedom to address itself to its own problems and act on its own best judgement in allaying them. The commission also encourages more open attitudes to educational questions, organization, and structures. The report challanges the traditional balance of allocation of resources between primary, junior secondary and senior secondary levels. The report includes descriptions of the commission's multiprogram approach to its supplementary funding of state school systems. (SJL)
