Making sure no mind is left behind
The recommendations outlined in the report can assist in restoring Australia’s education system to being ‘an ultimate equaliser’, to reduce inequality in our nation, and to give Australia the skilled workforce it requires to drive our economy well into the second half of the century.
We need to work together to improve Australia’s chance of competing in the international marketplace through a world-class education system and a highly-educated population. Governments can lay the path, educational institutions and NGOs can deliver the programs, businesses can provide the opportunities, and parents and students can cultivate a commitment to lifelong learning.
This singular vision is a challenge - and an opportunity - for us all.
Below is a snaphot of the key-takeaways from this report.
“The current system serves privileged kids well, but in many ways fails the underprivileged ones.”
“What we need is a vision for our education system in Australia.”

Yes every child has a right to an education that supports them in reaching their full potential and parents are at the frontline to foster their child's education and ongoing learning. Programs for families on low incomes or with learning disabilities may be of benefit for these parents to build the importance that their child have these opportunities that supports them in achieving and reaching their full potential. Programs that help the parents that fosters their own self esteem and self worth as the parents are their children's role models and it's very hard to develop these skills of self love and acceptance of self as a child if you don't have them yourself. Working with young children I see the absolute value of each child's early learning and the skills they foster when young children are able to access early education programs

Perhaps we are already too far behind? Artificial intelligence & rising inequality are almost insurmountable issues and are not being properly addressed the government or private sectors, world-wide. Ethical considerations and research into these areas are paramount to any hope in the future!
