In this eclectic collection of papers, 13 essayists and four high-profile discussants consider the complexity of the tertiary education system and its underlying structures. The papers are clustered by themes: how educational matters influence the system's structures; who controls the system; how the system is governed in a competitive environment; and how individuals interact with the system to ensure they get quality offerings. Each theme is considered by a leading thinker in the area of education, policy or economics.
Although a wide range of perspectives are offered, one key theme emerges — there is no simple 'market design' which would meet all the objectives of the various elements of Australia's tertiary education system.
