More than 20,000 Australians have their say on future of school education with a week to go


More than 20,000 people have completed a national survey to help shape the future of school education in Australia.

As part of the Review into the next National School Reform Agreement, the survey has been completed by 10,531 teachers, 7,159 parents or guardians, and 2,432 students.

Teachers and former teachers, parents and students still have until the end of next week to complete the survey.

This is all about ensuring Australians directly involved in the school education system get a say on how we make it better and fairer.

Survey participants can have their say on range of issues including:

  • Improving education outcomes
  • Supporting student health and wellbeing, and
  • Supporting and retaining teachers.

The survey results will help identify ways to meet students’ current and future needs and help inform the recommendations for the Review’s final report.

The 10-minute survey is available here, and is open until 5pm on Friday 23 June.

Comment attributable to Minister for Education Jason Clare:

“More than 20,000 Australians have completed the survey in the last few weeks, which highlights just how passionate teachers, parents and students are about their schools.  

“This is a great opportunity to have your say on what matters to you and how we can make our schools better and fairer.

“I encourage teachers, parents and students who are passionate about improving Australian school education to add their voice to the survey before it closes on 23 June.”
