Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The State Board of Education was established by the State Board of Education Act 1983. Its primary function was to provide advice to the Minister for Education regarding the provision of primary and secondary education within Victoria. The Board was a representative forum made up of full-time members representing teachers and parents, and part-time members representing other interested parties, such as school councils, administrators and non-government schools. Through a number of standing committees, the Board undertook research and provided advice to the Minister in areas such as: the development of policies and priorities for Victorian schools; the needs of schools; distribution of resources, including personnel, goods, equipment and funding; funding of non-government schools; and curriculum design in schools.

The Board issued publications such as working papers, reports and information sheets, and also held public lectures and seminars in order to inform the community about developments in Victorian education.

The State Board of Education was abolished in 1992 by the State Board of Education (Repeal) Act 1992. Further research is required to document the subsequent agency to the State Board of Education.
