ROAD SAFETY EDUCATION IN AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS - AN ANALYSIS OF SOME KEY DISSEMINATION AND IMPLEMENTATION PRACTICES. ROADWATCH - INAUGURAL ANNUAL CONFERENCE, PROCEEDINGS, UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA, NEDLANDS, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, 11 JUNE 1990

This paper is part of a larger study which the authors were commissioned to undertake in 1988-89 by the Federal Office of Road Safety. The purpose of the study was to examine the dissemination and the implementation of road safety education materials by major providers and to identify exemplary practices in both primary and secondary schools. The focus of this paper is on the dissemination practices undertaken by three major groups, namely policy directors and senior administrators; consultants and curriculum developers; and education officers, administrators and co-ordinators. These officers use a number of strategies to promote road safety education materials in schools. Although there are various successful practices, a number of issues and problems were revealed. These problems are discussed in some detail and possible solutions are presented. (Author/TRRL)
