Using archival footage this video raises a variety of issues relevant to contemporary educational debate in both Victoria and Australia at large. Topics addressed include the need for education to change, the role of government schools, equal educational opportunity, the integration of disabled children, Aboriginal education, multiculturalism and parent participation.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
