Hence, we find a divided education lobby (Barcan, 1976, 1982) and the further tendency to associate anything smacking too much of morality as being tied to the influence of the churches and so to be regarded by public educators as inimical to good educational practice (Lovat, 2018; Lovat & Clement, 2008).

Alan Barcan (2007: 29) commented in a recent paper on the history of Australian adult education, that 'anyone involved in adult education during the 1950s, 60s or 70s would be aware of the remarkable change that it underwent thereafter.' According to Don Anderson, adults had been admitted through various access schemes from the establishment of the universities in Australia in 1852 but that, despite early champions of wider participation such as John Woodley, Professor of Classics at the University of Sydney who said in 1865 that 'the doors of the university' should be 'open to the intellect of the whole country' (Anderson, 1990: 39), the universities remained elite institutions until just after World War Two.
