The Australian Council for the Defence of Government Schools (DOGS) has been fighting for public education since the 1960s.

The Council has two main objectives:
1. The promotion and protection of public education
2. The separation of Church and State and opposition to public funding of private religious schools

We invite you to explore our site and find out about the battle for public education in Australia for the last 40 years - and the continuing struggle for the protection of our children's inheritance.

The DOGS also have a radio program on Melbourne's community radio station 3CR.

Tune in to 3CR, 855 on the am dial at 12.00 Noon . every Saturday to listen to the latest news on the radio.
