Information Sources


These files were kept by successive Directors-General of the Education Department who were members of the Australian Education Council. Council members were chosen from State and Federal Government, and Education Department executives. The Queensland Minister for Education, Hon. Sir Alan R. Fletcher MLA and the Director-General of Education for Queensland, Mr A.E. Guymer, were two members of this Committee. The Council met on an annual basis to discuss all aspects of education.

These files contain copies of Australian Education Council meeting agendas and minutes, related correspondence, reports, recommendations, surveys, draft ministerials and conference papers, Standing Committee papers and notes and annotations by the Director General of Education. Agenda items included: technical and further education, curriculum development, educational statistics, special educational needs and concessional taxation for education, nomenclature for the school years, physical education and Aboriginal education, as well as funding and grants.
