This report provides information about the schooling of over three million students in approximately 10,000 schools in Australia's eight states and territories during 1991. Chapter 1 describes the Australian Education Council and offers a national overview of schooling in Australia including the structure of schooling and how to achieve and support national goals. The chapter ends with 10 common and agreed national goals for schooling in Australia. The remaining eight chapters present comprehensive accounts of schooling in each state and territory: (1) New South Wales; (2) Victoria; (3) Queensland; (4) South Australia; (5) Western Australia; (6) Tasmania; (7) Northern Territory; and (8) Australian Capital Territory. The Commonwealth plays a key role in order to address national priorities for Australian schools and to facilitate cooperative efforts among Australian educational authorities. The final chapter describes the Commonwealth's involvement in schooling, major developments during 1991, social justice initiatives, Commonwealth programs for schools, and income support for students.
