Student Demand Projections: Supporting Analysis: Gippsland Tertiary Education Plan, Daniel Edwards, Paul R. Weldon

Dr Daniel Edwards

There is considerable interest in the provision of, and access to, tertiary education within Victoria by the State Government.

Competition And Choice: Determinants Of Access To University Places Via The Victorian School System, Daniel Edwards Dec 2006

Competition And Choice: Determinants Of Access To University Places Via The Victorian School System, Daniel Edwards

Dr Daniel Edwards

The provision of secondary school education in Victoria has changed substantially over the past 50 years.

As a result, the comprehensive ideal for organising government secondary schooling was adopted.

Since the mid-1990s, enrolments in government secondary schools have been decreasing. As ...
