To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives, in Parliament assembled. We, the undersigned citizens of the Commonwealth do humbly pray that the Commonwealth Government:

1.   Pass, immediately, the States Grants (Schools) Legislation for the year 1977 as recommended by the Australian Schools Commission in their Report for the Rolling Triennium 1977-79.

2.   In no way alter the present role and administrative functions of the Australian Schools Commission.

3.   Encourage the Australian Schools Commission to develop and implement without restrictions, a philosophy of Educational Funding independent of Government pressures.

4.   Guarantee continuing parent and teacher representation on the Australian Schools Commission through the two recognized national bodies, namely the Australian Council of State School Organizations and the Australian Teachers Federation who represent the vast majority of children in Australia attending Government Schools.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray. by Mr Howard.

Petition received.
