Intergovernmental relations have significant impact on the ways in which education policy is implemented in Australia. The broad issues of race, ethnicity and gender will be discussed in the context of historical policy on Indigenous Affairs, immigration and equal opportunity, and more recent events which have affected the ways in which policies for school education have been framed and implemented. Specific examples are used for illustrative purposes, rather than attempting a comprehensive coverage of all state and territory education jurisdictions.

Keywords: Cultural Diversity, Education, Impact of Intergovernmental Policies, Race, Gender and Class
