ISSUE 299  VOLUME 94, NUMBER 1  JUNE 2023
The Education Act 1872 commemorative edition of the Victorian Historical Journal, marking 150 years of public education in Victoria, was supported by the Victorian Government.

“This special issue of the Victorian Historical Journal arises from a two-day conference organised by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria in October 2022 to mark the 150th anniversary of the 1872
Education Act. These papers must be read as reflections on some questions arising out of the Act and its subsequent history. This is a timely approach, 50 years after the publication of the encyclopaedic centenary
history, Vision and Realisation.

“Children are our future. What society in its clearest mind would not want to educate every child to reach its full potential? Yet our education system is in one sense a lottery, in another a marketplace. In 1872, amid controversy, parliamentarians in colonial Victoria legislated to mandate a basic education for all. If it was to be compulsory then it had to be offered locally and free of charge, paid for by the community as a whole—‘the state’. It had to be secular, too. While there was universal agreement about alphabet and numbers, and general agreement about the physical world, society quarrelled over faith, so religion could not be part of the compulsory curriculum.” (From Dr Andrew Lemon’s editorial)
