From preschool to postgrad, from private to public, and from sandstone to the school of life, what do the parameters of our educational experiences add up to?  

Australia is one of the most educated countries in the world, but not every Australian has access to a world-class education. What does a good education look like in a country with an increasingly segregated school system, public funding for private institutions and a tertiary sector that’s facing an uncertain financial and philosophical future? How does education change in a country where political regard for its most basic principle—that education matters—seems to have so profoundly changed? Griffith Review 75: Learning Curves explores what we can learn about learning. 

Learning Curves is out now. This issue features new work from Pasi Sahlberg, Gabbie Stoud, Winnie Dunn, Andrew Leigh, Lisa Fuller, Miriam Sved, Tegan Bennett Daylight, Catherine Ball and many others.
