FREE. SECULAR. COMPULSORY. 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE VICTORIAN EDUCATION ACT 1872.
CONFERENCE OCTOBER 1 -2 2022
Our past informs our present and our future. Our education system shapes our society. The way we are taught, the way we learn—these questions have always been sharply debated.
This unique two-day conference offers an impressive range of expert historians and educationists who will share their reflections on Victoria’s education system since the passing of the Education Act in 1872.
The program is built around the three key elements : Free, Secular and Compulsory. What did that mean then, and what does it mean now? At the end of each session there will be panel discussions and audience questions.
The conference will be held at the Royal Historical Society of Victoria, 239 A'Beckett st, Melbourne. Zoom participation is also available. Ticket prices range from $20 - $160 depending on whether you are attending one or both days, are attending online or via Zoom, and if you are an RHSV member, non-member or hold a concession card.
