Boy troubles : understanding rising suicide, rising crime and educational failure by Jennifer Buckingham( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent statistics suggest that some disturbing things are happening in the lives of boys, which threaten the well being of boys. Indeed there is a remarkable differences between boys and girls in the figures on crime, suicide and educational performance. Girls commit only a fraction of the crimes that boys do, their school performance is better and they do not commit suicide at anything like the rate of boys. The author reveals that the great changes which have taken place in the Australian family over the last three decades - its growing instability, and the detachment of many children from a full and close life with their parents - appears to have been among the most significant causal factors contributing to boy trouble

Public education in New South Wales : submission to the 'Vinson' inquiry by Ross Harrold( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any initiative to have major policy issues discussed and debated outside the framework of government and the bureaucracy is commendable, as education in NSW over the last two decades has been heavily politicised. It must be noted that the NSW Teachers Federation also has its own agenda to pursue, resulting in a conflict of interest if forced to decide whom it is most obligated to serve-its members or the users of public education-as their interests will not necessarily coincide. Schools must be able to respond to the needs of their students, using their own experience and expertise, and with the support and informed participation of their communities. Issue Analysis Paper 20 examines the need for an independent inquiry and recommendations for the future of the schooling system. -- CIS
Child care and the labour supply by Jennifer Buckingham( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Child-care usage has grown markedly in the last quarter century, but in the last decade the major trend has been the crowding out of the informal sector. The cost of child care has risen at a greater rate than inflation, against a background of massive increases in government subsidies. Each new injection of government funding has been followed by an escalation in the cost of child care. There is a weak relationship between the cost of child care and female labour supply. [p.1-2]
Getting it right some of the time : an appraisal of the report on the Inquiry into the Education of Boys by Jennifer Buckingham( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem of boys' educational underachievement made it onto the political agenda with the establishment of a parliamentary inquiry into the education of boys in June 2000. The inquiry's report was tabled in parliament in late 2002. Titled Boys: Getting It Right, it makes 24 recommendations. The major thematic recommendations make of the report good sense and can be implemented almost immediately, however this paper queries other recommendations, such as a call for unconditional increases in teacher salaries and a reduction in class sizes, arguing they make less sense and are impractical. This paper also argues that the report fails to acknowledge a link between family structure and stability - that is, two-parent families versus single-parent families' and boys' educational problems, despite research and anecdotal evidence to the contrary. Yet it acknowledges that father absence is thought to be particularly detrimental to boys. Given that the majority of single-parent families are headed by mothers, it is hard to see how single parenthood and father absence can be considered two entirely different things. The inquiry into the education of boys has failed in this regard. [Author abstract, ed]

Child care : who benefits? by Jennifer Buckingham( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intention of this paper is to examine the arguments and evidence most often used to justify making child care more 'accessible and affordable' for all families, through increased government funding. [p.3]
The truth about private schools in Australia by Jennifer Buckingham( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The superior performance of private schools is commonly attributed to greater financial resources, selection of brighter students, or attributes of private school students and their families that give them advantages over public schools students. A review of the relevant statistics and research proves this is not necessarily the case. This Issue Analysis addresses misconceptions about the nature of private schooling and explores some of the reasons why private and public schools differ
