The study of primary school resourcing

This study examined the condition of Australian primary schools with particular reference to curriculum and the resourcing. The study was conducted in collaboration with the Australian Primary Principals Association and Australian Council for Education Research. A random sample of 118 primary schools was drawn from all states and territories. Detailed information was collected about the allocation of time for each learning area from classrooms in the participating schools. With the assistance of both schools and their system authorities income and expenditure data were collected for the school year. Analysis of the comprehensive databases produced results that have been useful in discussions around the national curriculum and new school funding models.
