A History of Australian Schooling: Craig Campbell & Helen Proctor

Launched by Professor Lyn Yates

This is a social history of school education in Australia, from dame schools and one-teacher classrooms in the bush, to the growth of private schools under public funding in recent years. It is the first systematic history of education published in thirty years, and offers invaluable insights into the issues and debates which characterise one of our most important institutions.

The Co-op will have copies of the book for sale at the launch.

The Launch will be preceded by a seminar, presented by Craig Campbell: 'Thinking education, history and schooling: Quo Vadis?
