Example text

Skilbeck and H. Connell Making our Australian systems of schooling truly educative and of real value and use to all who enrol in them is a direct and immediate responsibility of state, territory and federal governments, of the private sector and the community at large. Poor attitudes by students towards learning, low standards of attainment, truancy, early dropout and school violence are among the issues to address with ever more vigour. Not just renewed effort, but some quite radical changes are needed in the content and organisation of schooling, in a wider context of social and economic development.

How can any democratic government ask us to believe, when it distributes the public funding that now covers the salaries of teachers in around 95% of all Australian schools,5 that the difference between public and non-government schools does not matter or that it can simply be airbrushed away for political purposes, however bipartisan? How can there be no difference between placing those publicly funded teachers in a system of public schools where their services are freely available to children without fees or religious tests and placing them in schools where their services are available only to those that meet such tests, set privately by non-government authorities?

Finally, there is a dilemma for governments with a commitment to both public and private education of how to present policies for assisting the private sector without appearing to diminish the value of the public. Substantial subsidies extend choice by making it easier for parents to use private schools, but there may also be an implicit message that private is better. This occurred in England with an assisted places scheme designed to help bright but poor children attend private schools. Your last question, Phil, asked how to achieve these reforms so that all children receive a good education.
