One focus of the project was to interview people who were staff of schools and education departments in three decades of educational reform, the 1930s, 1950s, and 1970s. Overall the interviews span a seventy-year period from the 1930s to the 2010s. Sometimes the interviews do not neatly fit into one decade, for example, someone was a primary school student in the 1930s but attended secondary school in the 1940s. Or they started school in the 1940s and finished in the 1950s. Many people have also stories that overlap, for example, their experiences as a student informed their decision to become a teacher, and many people's educational careers span several decades. In organising the oral history interviews, we have focused more closely on one aspect of each person’s story. You can browse each of the individual teachers' stories below and scroll down to browse by decade.
