[Truncated] This dissertation reports a study designed to analyse the policy processes, including the professional development training, associated with the Discovering Democracy curriculum resource package. The particular focus of this research was the way the Discovering Democracy policy process was interpreted and practised in Western Australia. The study analysed the policy cycle on three levels. At the macro level, it examined the perspectives of Commonwealth Government policy initiators, including the Commonwealth Minister. At the intermediate level it examined the perspectives of professional development trainers in Western Australia. Micro level analysis considered the perspectives of teachers in both government and non-government Western Australian schools.
