Improving the Quality of Australian Schools
Judith D. Chapman
ACER, 1991 - Education - 162 pages
The papers presented in this publication attempt to capture the various attitudes and research on issues concerning 'quality' education. The major considerations addressed here include: the context in which the issue of quality has arisen and within which it might be addressed; the concept of quality, the criteria which may be used for its demarcation, the categories in which it may be defined and rendered intelligible, and the way in which it may be employed in the framing and discussion of policy matters in educational institutions; the ways and means by which the concept of quality is applied, and the institution of policy derived from or to be built upon it; and the question of the best kinds of structures and strategies which may be planned and developed as ways of implementing the different forms of policy deliberation, and the efficiency and effectiveness of their various modes of delivery.
