Teachers in primary schools deal with a wide range of issues every day. This book helps teachers to understand those issues, and how they fit in with recent government policies and initiatives.

Each chapter looks at:

* relevant statements of policy or initiative

* how these statements fit into the context of specific schools

* the challenges they present for those involved in schools

* how schools can respond to these challenges

* learning across contexts

Each chapter has been written by one practitioner and one academic and between them the chapters cover the whole range of Australian primary schools.


'This is a useful and thought-provoking view of an educational system in the throes of change and reflection' - - Education Review

'…if you are looking for a different view on problems which you have faced, and do face, in primary schooling in this country, the book is well worth dipping into.' - Managing Schools Today
