To the Honourable the Speaker and the members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned electors in the State of New South Wales respectfully sheweth:

1.   The nation-wide Survey of Educational Needs undertaken by the Australian Education Council has provided clear evidence that government education in the various States is failing children on a massive scale.

2.   The following conditions at the North Turramurra school give further evidence of the needs in the State education system:

No library facilities, no assembly hall, no tuck shop, art and crafts room would be desirable, at least one remedial teacher and a teaching aide for our teaching mistress.

Your petitioners therefore respectfully pray that your honourable House will (i) make immediately a substantial Federal emergency grant to all State Gov ernments for education services and (ii) carry out a public national survey to determine needs of the States after 1975.

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

Petition received.
