The objective of the Council’s education program is to raise the level of knowledge of India, including Australia’s relations with India, at the primary and secondary levels in Australian schools.

To encourage the study of India in Australian schools, the Council agreed during 1997-98 to provide funding to the Asia Education Foundation for the Accessing India teacher professional development project. Accessing India, which incorporated an India resource web page, was designed to support the Raining Surprises and Into India Australian school curriculum packages focusing on contemporary India, for which Council funding had been provided over several years and which were published during 1996-97.

A Council-funded study tour of India by Australian primary and secondary teachers during January 1998 also promoted effective use of the India curriculum packages throughout Australia. The study tour, for which AIC funding had been agreed during 1996-97, was part of a series designed to give selected Australian teachers and educational administrators a working familiarity with India.
