    From the maelstrom of the Depression and World War II, from
    Communist Party membership in the 1930s-1950s, and early attachment to the
    feminism and peace, Jean Blackburn emerged as a significant public
    intellectual. Her life work was the attachment of education policy to the
    causes of social equality and opportunity. She worked with Peter Karmel on the
    most significant government report framing school policy in the twentieth
    century, the blue-print for the Australian Schools Commission.

    Blackburn was the architect of the Disadvantaged Schools Program,
    which revolutionised the way that public and Catholic schools delivered
    education to families marked by many disadvantages, including poverty. She was
    an architect of the Girls, School and
    report of 1976. Jean Blackburn possessed a charismatic presence,
    never more in evidence than as she worked on senior secondary school reform in
    Victoria in the 1980s. As a feminist Blackburn bridged the generations. She was
    a fiercely independent, courageous, creative and effective social reformer and
    public intellectual.
