The Values Education Study involved 69 schools and featured a Draft National Framework for Values Education in Australian Schools to guide debate on this important area.

Schools participating in the Values Education Study received grants of up to $7,000 to study and document their values education methods and identify best practice approaches. Projects focused on one or more of the following areas:

  • reviewing values education processes;
  • developing student social skills and resilience; and
  • incorporating values into teaching programmes across the key learning areas.

In addition to the case studies, the Values Education Study included a literature review and findings from an online survey of parents, teachers and students. Representatives from project schools, relevant organisations and education jurisdictions will be invited to take part in the forums in 2004..
