An account of the methods and achievements of the Australian correspondence schools in instructing children living in isolated areas. It seems that Australia can claim to be the first country to have shown in a systematic way, and on a large scale, that it is possible to provide by correspondence a complete elementary education for children who have never been to school. Cunningham reviews the conditions giving rise to correspondence instruction, the growth and scope of the Correspondence Schools, curricula and methods, attainments and progress of pupils.
