Abstract

The paper explores the role of the Society for the Provision of Education in Rural Australia (SPERA) and the challenges it has faced as the primary voice for Australian rural educators. The paper charts the origins of SPERA, and the contributions of key people involved in its foundation and on-going development. The paper then examines the advocacy and impact of SPERA through its initiatives in establishing an internationally recognised national conference, the creation of Australia's only specifically focussed rural education journal, Education in Rural Australia and the recognition of exceptional rural education institutions through its Australia Rural Education Award program.
