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.
