* Education policy and practice * Education curriculum, policy and leadership * Social and cultural issues in education
Stephen's key research contributions have been in education policy and practice, across various issues and contexts, focusing on curriculum, policy and leadership in a way that is a particularly relevant to social, political and cultural issues in education.
In 2003-04 , he published a major report (40,000) on outcomes-based assessment and reporting in NSW with Professor Ken Eltis. This report was called Time to Teach - Time to Learn (2003), from which the NSW Government adopted all 29 recommendations.
Between 2000 and 2004 , as first named Chief Investigator, Stephen successfully completed a $501,111 ARC SPIRT, with Bob Connell, Gordon Stanley and David Saltmarsh, on VET and equity in senior schooling based on VET in Schools reforms to the Higher School Certificate in NSW. Stephen also led a team that trialled the McGaw Green Paper recommendations for reforming Higher School Certificate in NSW (Shaping their Future). The Team's report to the HSC Taskforce was instrumental in shaping the Government's final report, Securing their Future (Aquilina, 1997), that became the driving force for improving secondary matriculation in NSW. In the 1990s, he led two major reports on Vocational Education and Training (Key Competencies) for the NSW and Commonwealth governments.
Other research projects compared school-based and private industry organisational change (with an emphasis on management and leadership - supported by an ARC Institutional Grant), and multi-sector educational initiatives in Australia and internationally.
Stephen has also worked on home-school partnerships funding by an ARC Institutional Grant, and worked with the USA League of Schools Reaching Out. He is a member of a number of international research networks, a reviewer for journals of high standing, an examiner of research theses, and an 'Ozreader' for the Australian Research Council.
