The Senate Committee Report.
In October 1995, the Australian Parliament received the report of the Senate's Environment, Recreation, Communications and the Arts Reference Committee, entitled "Arts Education." This report was released just prior to an election and, as a result, its recommendations were subsequently ignored. These recommendations, some responsibility of the Commonwealth for arts education, also identifies many that are the province of the states. The only changes in arts education since 1995 have been deleterious ones. This paper highlights key recommendations for visual arts education made in the report and calls for a revival of the initiative. The paper's purpose is to try to ensure that the issues raised before and reported upon by the Committee are not overlooked. (Author/BT)
