The Best Education System in Australia

Our education system should embody excellence, advocate choice, engage parents and teachers and grow opportunities for our next generation.


We Believe

  • Our families deserve access to the best schools and childcare in the nation, to build our children’s capabilities and our State’s future
  • In supporting the education choices that parents, care-givers and families make for their children – you are the ones who know them best
  • Education professionals need to be empowered, engaged and supported to ensure the best outcomes for their students
  • Young people should be provided with the education and training opportunities they need to gain employment both in new and established industries


How we will achieve this together

  • 2.1 Delivering the best schools in Australia by improving education outcomes and teaching standards
  • 2.2 Returning decision making to parents, principals, teachers and local school communities
  • 2.3 Building more innovative and flexible school systems
  • 2.4 Expanding opportunities for students to engage with training, skills and higher education and ready themselves for employment
