The Lawrie Shears story records an important history of education
in Victoria during the twentieth century. During a time of
unprecedented growth, stories told in this book address emerging
trends, educational philosophies and administrative practice. They
explore these in relation to Shears: how they informed his
performance; how they directed his endeavours; how they influenced
his philosophies and shaped his policies in each of the roles he
filled. The book tells the story of schools and classrooms,
teachers and students and the people who worked in the system. It
traces the influence of transnational flows of knowledge,
philosophies and policy. Paying homage to the contributions of
Shears and other key players, it records a significant social
history; identifies the roots of today's education system and
presents a platform for further research.
