At home, as the fa­ther of two young girls in preschool and pri­mary school, wor­ry­ing about what is in their best in­ter­ests is my top pri­or­ity, as is the case with par­ents right across Aus­tralia.

How­ever, as Aus­tralia’s min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion, I strive ev­ery day to help en­sure that ev­ery child in ev­ery State and Ter­ri­tory should have the op­por­tu­nity to be their best.

That’s why the Turn­bull Gov­ern­ment is com­mit­ted to an ed­u­ca­tion re­form agenda from the high chair to higher ed­u­ca­tion – en­sur­ing our in­vest­ment and poli­cies in early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion and care, school­ing, uni­ver­si­ties and vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion are all fo­cused on boost­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and im­prov­ing out­comes for our chil­dren and stu­dents.
