Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The history of a major sectoral reform and its relationship to the wider government restructuring. It is based both on archival material and on interviews with many of the key figures of the period: Ministers, educators, public servants and sectoral representatives. The authors consider that the changes in education were as much a revolution from below as an imposition from above.

"An independent history commissioned by the Ministry of Education and produced with the assistance of the Historical Branch, Department of Internal Affairs."

Includes bibliographical references (p. 281-288) and index.
