The Comprehensive Public High School
This study analyzes the comprehensive public high school as both a policy ideal and a social institution by contrasting the development of the public high school in Australia with both the UK and the US. It focuses on such issues as: changing policy approaches to public high schooling, the "middle class flight" to private schools, how school systems in Australia respond to changes in international education policy, and the tensions between regional, state and national decision-making groups interested in reforming secondary schools policy.
