Gear­ing up for Gon­ski 2.0

Townsville Bulletin - - NATION -

A TEAM of prin­ci­pals, ed­u­ca­tion lead­ers and con­sul­tants are set to join David Gon­ski for a re­view of school fund­ing.

The Gon­ski 2.0 re­view will probe how best to spend record school fund­ing in a bid to turn around Aus­tralia’s flatlin­ing re­sults.

Mr Gon­ski led a land­mark re­view of school fund­ing un­der the Gil­lard govern­ment in 2011.

He will chair this sec­ond re­view with for­mer teacher Dr Ken Bos­ton, boss of char­ity The Smith Fam­ily, Dr Lisa O’Brien, and the Queens­land Catholic Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mis­sion’s Dr Lee- Anne Perry also named on the panel.
