AU WA A13 - MINISTRY OF EDUCATION (1988-07-01 - 1994-01-01)

Administrative history

The Ministry of Education held responsibility for all primary, secondary and technical schools; colleges of advanced education; universities.

In 1986, as part of an overhaul of the State Education System, it was decided to abolish the Education Department and replace it with a Ministry of Education. The prevailing hierarchical system at the upper levels of the department were to be dismantled with the view of streamlining and reducing the costs of education administration. The proposed changes were based upon the recommendations of the Better Schools Report. Since the publication of the Report in January 1987, this agency was styled the Ministry of Education; however, the official change of title did not occur until the Education Act was amended by Parliament (July 1988).

The Ministry's name was changed to the Education Department of Western Australia in early 1994. The organisation now operates as the Department of Education and Training.
