The ex­perts re­spond

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS: NATIONAL -

“It’s a case of pol­icy on the run and a poor sub­sti­tute for the Gon­ski agree­ments, which are al­ready lift­ing re­sults in our schools, and are pro­vid­ing a path to lift all schools to a min­i­mum re­source stan­dard.”

“Many shots are still to be fired. But this clear, pos­i­tive ap­proach could be just what we need to get us past the squab­bling on fund­ing – a key hur­dle so that we can move on to the is­sues that will re­ally drive improvements in school ed­u­ca­tion.”

“The re­view is not de­signed to sim­ply “re-write” the orig­i­nal Gon­ski re­port, but in­stead has an ex­plicit fo­cus on re­view­ing ev­i­dence about the kinds of ini­tia­tives that im­pact most pos­i­tively on stu­dent out­comes. This is so money can be bet­ter tar­geted.”

An optimist, there­fore, would hope that Gon­ski 1.0 and 2.0 will to­gether pro­vide a pow­er­ful roadmap for pos­i­tive change in how schools are funded and what they do with the money.”

“By re­tain­ing the ar­chi­tec­ture of the Gon­ski model and promis­ing fund­ing in­creases above in­fla­tion for the next three years, Mal­colm Turn­bull has taken Coali­tion schools fund­ing pol­icy back to the sen­si­ble cen­tre.”
