To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled.

The petition of teachers in the inner city area of Sydney in the state of New South Wales respectfully sheweth:

That the children of the inner city area should be compensated educationally for the lack of developmental opportunities in their homes and neighbourhood environment.

That they need pre schools, small classes, specially trained teachers, a specially designed curriculum, better physical facilities, and a new integration between home and school.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled will adopt the principle of compensatory education generally, and the specific principle of differential staffing according to needs.

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

Petition received.
