Abstract In December 2002 the Federal Minister for Education announced the Values Education Study. A significant amount of funding flowed from the initiative over the next five and a half years. Over the funding period values education was added to school curricula frameworks at the State and Territory level if it was not already included. Funds were made available to every school. This funding was used to run a school-community forum, provide a flagpole and an Australian flag for every school, hold annual national and state-based values education fora. In addition, the Curriculum Corporation developed a curriculum resource package, Good Practice School Projects and partnerships between educators and the community took place, and the National Framework for Values Education for Australian Schools (2005) was released.
