Past, present and future
Includes: Welcome drinks and viewing of ‘School Days‘, recently opened at Old Treasury Building.
Free, secular and compulsory. These are the principles on which the Education Act of Victoria 1872 was based. These foundations of education were based on values, opinions, facts and beliefs about children, learning and the benefits of education to society. But how has that changed over time? Where are we heading? What are our present day values, and what assumptions might we need to unlearn? On this evening, through guest speakers and a new exhibition ‘School Days’ we look back at where we have come from in education in Victoria and hear from experts about where the future of education is heading.
